Law Building

In a desolate, sun-scorched corner of the world, an elderly woman has come to see her beloved grandson, a young officer stationed at a remote military outpost. With the enemy just beyond the compound, she wanders the barracks, observing the routines of military life, before making a sudden trip into the outlying countryside. Featuring a mesmerizing performance by Russian opera legend *Galina Vishnevskaya, Alexandra is a viscerally powerful film from the great Alexander Sokurov (Russian Ark).

“A film of startling originality and beauty. A beautiful, eerie work of art.” —New York Timescem
