Lonely Planet (Planeta Acheret)

, , 2012

This surreal, avant-garde take on the documentary style was screened at the Tokyo International Film Festival in 2012 and the New York Jewish Film Festival this year.

A film crew embarks on an incredible ghost chase, traveling along the Trans-Siberian Railway, searching for Mishka, a boy who is said to have fled into the Belarus forest during World War Two where he spent three solitary years living with a pack of wolves.

During their quest the film crew reach some of the most isolated places on earth and meet people reminiscent of Gogol’s and Dostoyevsky’s Russia. Until, finally, they meet the boy who lived with wolves.
