Bobok

Alexandra Karelina, Ivan Yakushev
Bobok is one of Dostoevsky’s late works, telling the story of a drunken writer who dozes off in a cemetery and hears the conversations of the dead around him. The subject matter of this idiosyncratic adaptation, which marks the great writer’s bicentenary, is not so much a specific text as what has come to be known as Dostoevskian insight. The work’s creators, Alexandra Karelina and Ivan Yakushev, have isolated the macabre essence of the story’s ironic plot and made it vividly apparent on screen.

Alexandra Karelina is a documentary filmmaker, a photographer and a regular participant at international exhibitions and film festivals. Ivan Yakushev has been a graphic designer since 2009, and has been making and releasing experimental music since 2011. He teaches at the Art and Design School of the Higher School of Economics.
