Where the Condors Fly

Carlos Klein, Switzerland/Germany/Chile,
2012, Colour, 91 min

    Chilean film director Carlos Klein accompanies Russian filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky during the shooting of his latest film. In Patagonia, at Lake Baikal and in Shanghai, Victor Kossakovsky explores the singular relationships between places and people on opposite sides of the world. Carlos Klein documents the making of this ambitious film in a very personal way, driven by his own inner search for images that still have an impact on us. While doing so, he reveals his own and Kossakovsky‘s ambiguous attitude towards filmmaking. “Where the Condors Fly” is a critical and deeply humorous reflection about cinematography.
