Sun Dog

Dorian Jespers
Fedor is a young locksmith in the Arctic city of Murmansk. On a long winter night, he wanders from client to client through the concrete labyrinth of the frozen city. It's been so long since the sun was seen here that reality is beginning to take on phantasmagorical qualities. Artfully shot with a wandering, somnambulistic camera, this graduation film by the Belgian Dorian Jespers offers a closer look at the Russian otherworldly. The film can be seen as a local response to Enter the Void.

Dorian Jespers (1993) is a Belgian filmmaker. He studied cinematography at INSAS and directing at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Ghent, receiving an education that focuses strongly on the development of an individual cinematic language. This is reflected in his experimental fantasy MA graduation film, Sun Dog. The film premiered in the Ammodo Tiger Short Competition at the International Rotterdam Film Festival, where it won the main Ammodo Tiger Short Award and was nominated for a European Film Academy award.
