These two haunting, visually arresting non-fiction short films explore time and memory.

Marina's House
2012
57min
Directed by Dali Rust
In this meditative short, writer Marina Tarkovskaya—daughter of poet Arseny Tarkovsky and sister of director Andrei—guides the viewer through her home and her family’s remarkable history, movingly recounting memories of pain, sadness, and healing through creativity.

Letter
2013
20min
Directed by Sergei Loznitsa
Assembled from footage he shot at a rural psychiatric facility over the course of a decade, Loznitsa’s haunting short is a record of a place seemingly unstuck in time and space. Filmed in hazy, washed out black and white, the ghostly images unspool like an “artifact resurrected... the sense of lostness, malady and asynchronicity is prevalent” (MUBI Notebook).
