‘The Road Movie’ Trailer: Russian Dash-Cam Documentary Brings Non-Fiction Insanity

Written by on November 20, 2017 


Much of the Western world first learned about the weird, wonderful, and bizarre culture of Russian dashboard cameras in 2013, when the Chelyabinsk meteor blazed across the Ural Mountains and was captured on a multitude of low-grade lenses. Now, there is a documentary set to open in this nation next year from Oscilloscope Laboratories composed solely of Russian automobile footage.

Entitled The Road Movie, Dmitrii Kalashnikov’s feature premiered at the 2016 International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam and played at the prestigious True/False Film Festival. Judging from the just-premiered trailer and its plethora of descriptive pull quotes, The Road Movie promises to be a “can’t believe your eyes” extravaganza, featuring armed road rage, bears, forest fires, and tanks.

See the trailer and poster below.

A mosaic of asphalt adventures, landscape photography, and some of the craziest shit you’ve ever seen, Dmitrii Kalashnikov’s THE ROAD MOVIE is a stunning compilation of video footage shot exclusively via the deluge of dashboard cameras that populate Russian roads. The epitome of a you-have- to-see- it-to- believe-it documentary, THE ROAD MOVIE captures a wide range of spectacles through the windshield—including a comet crashing down to Earth, an epic forest fire, and no shortage of angry motorists taking road rage to wholly new and unexpected levels—all accompanied by bemused commentary from unseen and often stoic drivers and passengers.


The Road Movie opens in January.
