Mirage of a Russian village

Mirage d'un village russeDocumentary 52'
Written and Directed by : Luc THAUVIN

After taking a long itinerary through Russia for ten years, I have come across a village called 'Diki' which is situated in the Mordovian region, 700 km East from Moscow. I have met the five last inhabitants of this village in peril and, by dint of travelling by train, I have particularly got attached to Nioura, who now considers me like his son and tells me the singular history of the village.
If Mirage of a Russian village is about the end of a village which has got a singular past, and more broadly about the changing of a rustic society into a urban society, it also is the story of an encounter, a strong link between them and I that has increased as years have gone by. I share their actual life, listen to the stories of the past and also accompany them in their forced departures towards the city in order to get some interest in their children's itinerary.
That way, the story of the film turns into an inner journey where I do my best to understand the evolution of a whole country through the people who stay in the village and those who leave, where I go from locality to global nature."
