BRAGUINO

OUT 24 AU­GUST

Total Film - - Big Screen -

Clé­ment Cog­i­tore’s 48-minute mini-doc splices ethnog­ra­phy with folk-hor­ror stylings. Two fam­i­lies eke out liv­ings in the Siberian taiga; a fence be­tween them. Though this tense feud never erupts, Cog­i­tore sus­tains sus­pense through half-lit images and a Blair Witch-y sound mix. With its de-ro­man­ti­cised take on rus­tic life lashed to a half-formed nar­ra­tive, Braguino fas­ci­nates and frus­trates equally. Kevin Har­ley
