Why Sokurow? :

– because he keeps Tarkovsky’s dream (and many our dreams) going on

– because he is a boundary-pusher and a boundary-breaker

– he would never let his viewers to feel underestimated

– he’s got an artist, poet, philosopher and magician’s eye (and he shares it with us)

– because he reveals by disguising and disguise by revealing

– because… you name it…


Video above features Aleksandr Sokurov’s Mother and Son (1996). I used “ropbo” Youtube account to show it (thank you). If it is not playing that probably your have an impaired access to Youtube or your connection is poor…

Don’t attempt to watch a full Sokurov at your computer/television screen, it’s pointless. Find yourself a projector access or watch in a proper cinematic setting.
