Cine-Train - Films from Trans-Siberia

6 short documentaries from Trans-Siberia 
 
The "cine-train ("kinopoezd") was the unique working method invented by Russian documentary filmmakers in the 1930’s. Film crews were travelling around the USSR in specially equipped wagons. Everything they needed for filmmaking was at their disposal. They were shooting reports and chronics and were projecting it all over the country. Today, new digital technologies make it easier to set up once again this experience.   
 
Co-organised by NISI MASA and Moviement, “Cine-Train” was an international workshop for young filmmakers that took place from the 1st to the 21st of September 2008 along the 9288 Km on the mythic Trans-Siberian railroad, from Europe to Asia. 18 young filmmakers constantly asked themselves along the 9 302 km of the mythic Trans-Siberian railroad track.
 
Where does Europe ‘end’? What concrete expressions or 
feelings of this border can be found? From Moscow to 
Vladivostok, NISI MASA and Moviement offered theparticipants(rallied into 6 shooting crews) the 
possibility to answer these questions in a stimulating atmosphere, supported with professional tutors, far away from clichés and preconceived ideas.
 
The films were then screened at the 6th Pacific Meridian - Vladivostok International Film Festival.
