Russia’s “Reverse Motion” brought forward
The psychological suspense thriller Reverse Motion, from debut director Andrey Stempkovsky, has picked up a Silver Zenith for First Fiction Feature.

The film’s director, Andrey Stempkovsky, was quoted as saying that the main challenge was to make an unconventional film about war. “We wanted to take a very different look at the inner nuts and bolts of the human soul of a person who returns from war and gets involved in the daily course of events."
It looks like the 35-year-old director, who worked as a journalist and photographer before he tried his hand at cinema and made several short films, has succeeded in producing a film that does not conform to a type.
Earlier this year “Reverse Motion” has already picked up the Best Scenario award at the Kinotavr festival in the Southern Russian city of Sochi.
