Sergei Loznitsa’s new film The Trial is comprised entirely of archival footage 
of a show trial in Stalinist Russia and the street demonstrations surrounding 
it. The Ukrainian filmmaker has taken long days of testimony and statements

grand scheme to sabotage Soviet industry with foreign help right up to the 
level of the French prime minister.

world – or how experimental filmmakers have turned to documentary approaches.
