  • Prisoners of War

    1995. Italy. Directed by Angela Ricci Lucchi, Yervant Gianikian. This haunting film comprises of footage shot during WWI from opposite sides of the conflict: Czarist Russia and the Austro-Hungarian empire. The filmmakers tinted the material with sensual colors from sepia to red, blue, and purple and slowed the footage to analyze the material. The total absence of commentary renders the material eloquent and disturbing. 67 min.
