A Hawk as Big as a Horse follows the daily life of Lydia, a bi-gender ornithologist who lives in Shcherbinka, a remote suburb of Moscow. As Lydia embarks on remaking David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, she creates Lara, a life-size silicon doll of her wife, Vasilisa. Between bird hunting, strange rituals and filming, Lydia seems to be the only one who can keep up with her endless fantasies.
A cinematic experience that transcends the documentary genre, becoming a very unique fairy tale guided by the enigmatic protagonist and director Sasha’s voice. Using three-dimensional animations and various cinematic techniques, the borders between reality and dream become blurred.
