Etnografisk film: Third-class travel
Third-class travel is a Trans-Siberian in a nutshell for those who cannot currently embark on it in real time.
A documentary film which recounts the lives of passengers travelling on the longest railway route in the world. The director tells the stories and fortunes of ordinary Russians met by chance on the Moscow-Vladivostok train. The endless journey is a metaphor of the country in perpetual motion, while the passengers’ stories form a social portrait of contemporary Russian society.
