8 Heads of Madness
Of love, of creation, of freedom. The feature film Marta Novák. Aneta Langerová as Russian poet Anna Barkova
A drama, feature-length fiction film about the poet Anna Barkova. At the age of 20, she was prophesied an amazing future—to become the greatest Russian poet. A few years later, she found herself in a Cargo truck heading for the uninhabited steppes of Kazakhstan, heading to a labor camp beyond the Arctic Circle. She spent 22 years of her life in Soviet camps. 8 Heads of Madness is about the eternal struggle between the artist Anna and external circumstances, the artist and her demons and longings.
Thank to Silvia Panáková from Arina film production, we had the opportunity to cooperate on one of eight chapters of the film. We handled all the VFX shots in a challenging sequence. The request was to change the country to step and add new objects and buildings. And here's the result.
