Sokurov’s internationally celebrated tour-de-force employs an immersive point-of-view camera that takes us into the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. Sokurov allows the viewer to magically travel through time and witness Catherine the Great, Czar Nicholas, and the Great Royal Ball of 1913. In a dazzling achievement, the camera travels across the Museum in a single, uninterrupted shot.
