400 people were paid to take part in an experimental cinema project led by Ilya Khrzhanovsky, a Russian film director. For the art film Dau, 400 citizens lived for three years in a meticulously-constructed set replicating a research institute from the Stalin-era. The set was located just outside Kharkov, in Ukraine. During the shooting, which ended in 2011, the “actors” were monitored 24-7 by surveillance cameras. They had to live and behave as if they were in a Soviet-era totalitarian regime and would be fined if, for instance, they smuggled in phones. Dau, which is a biopic about the Soviet physicist Lev Landau, will be shown to the public for the first time at an art installation in Berlin this month.
