“In The Fog ", the opening film of 20th Curtas Vila do Conde, is from today available on a DVD edition, edited by Alambique Filmes.

The short film, by Sergei Loznitsa, takes place in 1942 in the Western Border of the USSR. The region is under German occupation and the locals try to resist at all costs. Sushenya, an employee of the railways, is accused of treason and is carried by his comrades to the woods to be killed. But when they all fall into an ambush, the line between betrayal and heroism disappears and Sushenya is forced to make a moral choice.


Sergei Loznitsa has been a constant presence in Curtas Vila do Conde where he presented about a dozen films, including "The Miracle of Saint Anthony ", a Cutras Metragens CRL production filmed for the 20th birthday of the Festival.

The film, acclaimed by the critic, was in competition at Cannes Film Festival, where it received the FIPRESCI Award, and in the Odessa International Film Festival, which awarded the short film with The Best Film Award.
