A groundbreaking feat of filmmaking, Alexander Sokurov`s amazing journey through 300 years of Russian art and history is the first ever feature to be shot in a single, unedited take - the ultimate director`s cut. Magically transported to St. Petersburg`s Hermitage museum in the early 1700s. A contemporary filmmaker and a cynical 19th century French diplomat become accomplices in an extraordinary voyage through Russia`s turbulent past to the present day. As they explore the splendid corridors and salons of the Palace, the two men witness prominent historical figures enacting startling scenes from the Tsarist Empire. Digitally shot with a state-of-the-art high definition steadicam and featuring a masterfully orchestrated cast of 2,000 `Russian Ark` is destined to stand as a defining moment in cinema history.
