The documentary film The Era of Cinematic Language. Marlen Khutsiev is made in light of the upcoming centenary of the master. In our film, we talk about the life, work and dreams of Marlen Khutsiev. We focus the viewer's attention on Marlen Khutsiev’s unique film style - the cinematic language of the master. And through the cinematic language we strive to show the personality of the director. Not in the dry language of cinematography and not through abstract reflections, but by showing very specific techniques - the syllables and letters of the cinematic language that Marlen Khutsiev spoke. And that's the main point of our film. Unlike most biographical films, the core of the plot is not the biography, but the search for and analysis of the formation of specific cinematic techniques and, as a result, the various ideas that are present in Khutsiev’s work. We will witness how this cinematic language was born, how it burst into the world, how it was invented, how it transformed over the years. After all, our film is a story about a restless and contradictory personality, who - until his very advanced years - retained a keen interest and his own view of the world around him.
