“Old-world landowners” is an idyll, a drama, a parody and at the same time a parable by Nikolay Gogol about ageing, death and love, full of sadness, lyricism and charm. Why are the old people in the spotlight, what is so special about them?
Anastasia Fedoseeva studies film production in Norway, but she originally is from Arkhangelsk, Russia. Now she is already working on a diploma project that is a documentary on environmental issues.
She told me about her choice of the project, about the shooting process, as well as about the Icelandic witches, hard expeditions and the first eco-house in Arkhangelsk.
Horror, the anticipation of blood and crime, coupled with a mystical mood is in the air from the first minutes of the play. The riot of feelings and emotions envelops everyone who is in the audience: both the viewer and the actor himself. From them you can not escape into the corridor or buffet, you can not hide under the armchair or behind the back of your neighbor. They are going to overtake everyone.
