Silent Sun of Russia

Silent Sun of Russia portrays a generation of young Russians between 2018 and 2022. The film follows three young women, Alika, Alyona and Katya. They are rebels and anarchists and part of a global youth who dream of living a modern life in freedom. A pervasive sense of anxiety and restlessness about the future haunts the lives of the young women, and following Russia’s invasion in Ukraine, they find themselves in a new reality that requires difficult choices. In their quest for love, friendship and the dream of escaping Putin’s Russia, they live in uncertainty, where longing is replaced by difficult emotions and attempts to repress reality. The film offers a deeply intimate and poetic perspective on the present living conditions and the urgent decisions faced today by young Russians who cannot see a future in their native country.
