Director Statement

"Now the whole world is practically on its knees. Every day people are deprived of their rights under various, often completely ridiculous pretexts, and almost all cultural figures remain silent. In this film, I wanted to show what can happen if events continue to develop in the same direction and show what we can come to if we do not take responsibility towards humanity and ourselves.

The Russian title of the film "Quarantine" - "КАРАнтин" - contains a play on words, with КАРА meaning punishment. The film features various characters, each with their own point of view. It was more important for me to ask questions, not just to give answers. My film provides an opportunity to think about whether a man should build and guard his own dungeon? "
