Alexei Jankowski - People and Films

About this site

This site is about films written and directed by Alexei Jankowski, about people involved in their creation and of some trends, or topics with seemingly no direct connection to cinema, but to the life itself that brought the films into existence.

The Russian and the English sides of this website will be quite different, they aren't to be translations of one into the other, but will be just compiled of materials originally created in one of the two languages.

At present, two of my films are available on this site with English subtitles, The Little Red Tram, (43 min, 228 Mb) and Annunciation. The Little Red Tram is currently only available in Windows Media format.

Un jour en moins, our student documentary production of the second year in the FEMIS cinema school, is available in the original French version (72 Mb, 16 min, Windows Media). It also has a Russian page.

Other films in their original Russian versions without subtitles are available from the Russian pages of this site in the left-side menu. Hopefully, there are going to be more English-subtitles version, which will be indicated in the blog.
