“Our relationships don’t occur because we want them to, because we wish them. They do not occur because we want to get pleasure from such relationships. They do because we are afraid.”
Andrei Tarkovsky

LA VERONAL 2011

Lake Baikal, located in southern Siberia, is the deepest lake in the world. Such is its water volume that if you split it in the Earth’s surface, the planet would be covered by a layer of eight inches high. Rússia is a moving picture, a road trip to Lake Baikal.
The protagonists are in front of a roan that plunges into the forest. There is snow on the road. Rússia is large and unknown.
They are forced to stay together, locked inside a vehicle. They spend the night listening to radio programs. The road leads them to be increasingly closer to the lake, however, they never get to see it. From the beginning, Rússia is born with the will of never ending. Rússia is the geographical representation of fear.
