The Road Movie

Dmitrii Kalashnikov | Russia | 67

A fascinating mosaic of asphalt adventures, landscape photography, and some of the craziest shit you’ve ever seen, Kalashnikov’s The Road Movie is a stunning compilation of video footage shot exclusively via dashboard cameras in Russian automobiles. Due to lax regulations, the dash-cam is ubiquitous in Russia automobiles. Tens of millions of videos are created each day, capturing a vivid range of spectacles through the windshield, including comets crashing down to Earth, forest fires raging along the highway, and no shortage of motorists escalating road rage to new and unexpected levels. The video footage featured in Kalashnikov’s hilarious and bizarre film is often shocking, but no more so than the stoic commentary coming from the jaded Russian passengers.

The Block (Der Block)

Nadine Boller | Switzerland, Kyrgyztan | 10

In the middle of the steppes of Kyrgyzstan an old foundation dating back to the Soviet era is gaining more and more importance in the nomads' daily life.
