Directed by Aleksandr Sokurov

From acclaimed director Alexander Sokurov (RUSSIAN ARK, THE SUN), FAUST is an hallucinatory period piece set in the early 19th century and inspired by Goethe's famous play. Employing elaborate camera movements, a layered soundscape, intricate production design and spectacular locations, FAUST conjures a unique and phantasmagoric vision of the Faustian legend. The title character, played by Johannes Zeiler, is a man in search of the ideals of the Enlightenment but he becomes obsessed with the lovely Magarete (Isolda Dychauk) and sells his soul to the Devil (aka the Moneylender, played by Anton Adasinsky) so that he may possess her. Comic, cosmic, painterly and stunningly beautiful scenes unfold as the Devil takes Faust on a strange, unforgettable journey.
