SOROKIN TRIP /
At the end of the Soviet era Vladimir Sorokin blew up the traditions of Russian literature turning it into the cruel and subversive phantasmagorias. During Putin's first term he was the target of attacks by right-wing organizations. Now Sorokin is often perceived as a prophet who predicted the weird and whimsical features of modern Russia. In the documentary the writer reflects on his life and works, tracing their origins to the Russian literary canon, the Soviet artistic underground, and the aesthetics of totalitarian regimes.
