Film Fest Gent - State Funeral

"In State Funeral, Sergei Loznitsa cobbles together archival footage from the various grandiose celebrations that followed the death of Joseph Stalin in order to paint a portrait not of the Soviet politician himself, but of the theatrics that prop up totalitarianism." - Slant Magazine

"If unseen archive proves the greatest treasure of them all, then this uniquely Soviet endeavour surely knocks it out of the park." - Little White Lies
