Akula Dream

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

In 'Akula Dream' a Russian Akula submarine gets a new captain. However, the new captain is much more into Shamanic drumming, journeying, seances, and mind experiments than he is in nuclear deterrent. Not surprisingly, there is some tension aboard.
In form, the film straddles two registers; narrative film making and video art. It uses advanced CGI and has unusual dream sequences as members of the boat travel outside the hull.
