Panorama - Against the Grain

Tolyatti Adrift Laura Sisteró

Once famous for being home to the Soviet car industry, this film shows Tolyatti as a city having passed its splendor and in decline. Laura Sisteró's impressionistic feature debut, with its moody visuals and atmospheric electronic-rock score, evokes the pulse of those living in this Russian city. The Spanish director explores the urban landscape through three teenagers, who are seen rebelling against their malaise by racing and drifting old, remodeled cars across frozen lakes with their friends. A fascinating portrait of youth comes alive in a place where the future seems dystopic and dreams are curbed before they take flight.
