Russland (im Koyaanisqatsi-Style) und Usbekistan (im ZoomZoom-Style)

Zwei schnieke Reisefilme von Pete R.:

Russia was the last trip I did in 2017. I spent three weeks traveling from city to city in the rainy and gloomy weather of Russia. As you know, by the November, Russia is approaching winter and the weather can be quite unpredictable as it was for me. Instead of dwelling on bad weather, I decided to go out and capture the cities of Russia as it is while taking advantage of the approaching winter and went up to the Arctic Circle to witness the northern lights. It was probably one of the cheapest place in the world to do so.

After Murmansk, I went down and spent a week each in St Petersburg and Moscow to capture the »Life Out of Balance« of Russian cities. Yes, you are not mistaken. This video was fully inspired by the great documentary, Koyaanisqatsi, Life Out of Balance directed by Godfrey Reggio and the music composed by Philip Glass.



Two millennia ago, Uzbekistan was once the cradle of culture and trade right at the center of the ancient silk road. Nowadays, It is well-known for ancient cities and well preserved islamic architecture that scattered throughout the country hence why I decided to travel there. I spent around a week and a half traveling from Tashkent to Samarkand to Bukhara and then ended my trip in Khiva.

If you go to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan for the mountains, you come to Uzbekistan for the culture. Cities like Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva hold one of the most well preserved Islamic architecture in the world. Walking through these cities felt like I was walking back in time. These cities are basically open air museum cities. There is no better country to learn about the Silk Road than Uzbekistan.

For this video, I tried a different approach. Usually, in my films, I would go with a modern music and a visual showing the modern ways of life of the people in different countries, but for this one, I decided to go a more traditional route with music and visual that reflects more of what Uzbekistan represents.
