Wavegram of neighboring crimes

A night stroll, an innocent conversation about politics... and suddenly the movie breaks down, the picture breaks away from the soundtrack, the crimes of urban life shown are not explained by the voice-over text, which makes it become criminal itself. Image and sound live independently, sometimes antagonizing, sometimes pushing each other forward. They come together at the end, at the police station.

Director Biography - Max Danileiko

I was born and raised in a small town lost in the East Siberian taiga. In my student years, I suffered from acute movie mania, which led me to a passion for filming and, especially, film editing.

At the age of 25, I created a small home movie called "Proximity" about my grandmother. While watching it, two members of my family cried. After that incident, I made 4 or 5 short and medium-length Russian films and left them "on the table", giving myself over to music writing for a few years.

When I passed the 30-year mark, I started a video blog on the Internet, for which I made and published more than fifty very small films that didn't become popular.

In 2022, I took "out of the table" the movie "Proximity", edited it considerably and sent it to the All-Russian festival of experimental cinema INSIDE. Some viewers liked this short film.

The following year I revived the rest of my old motion pictures in a similar way, created some more new ones.
