Posted: 6/1/11 -- Photo by Marcin Kulakowski, Polish Film InstituteMichał Marczak's At The Edge of Russia, a gorgeously photographed and constructed film about life on a Russian army border post, screened at the 2011 True/False Film Fest. In the months since, the film has received several major awards, including the HBO Documentary Films Emerging Artist Award at Hot Docs. It screens this summer at Rooftop Films in New York City. Elliot Reed, wT/F editor, caught up with Marczak during True/False's closing night reception. In the middle of a very busy True/False Film Fest, I travelled with Marcin Sauter, director of the charming film North of Calabria (T/F 11), to central Missouri’s Amish country. Through his interpreter, I learned about a mysterious class Marcin and fellow Pole Michał Marczak, director of At The Edge of Russia (T/F 11), had taken together.
