Aleksandr Sokurov

Russian director Aleksandr Sokurov -- known for his long takes and highly original use of natural sounds and music -- captures the spirit of Japan in this film cycle that follows ordinary people in their day-to-day lives. Oriental Elegy ventures into a mystical, misty village; Dolce profiles writer Toshio Shimao; and A Humble Life provides a visual diary of an elderly woman's solitary existence in a mountain town
