Synopsis

At the end of the Chilean military regime, filmmaker Carlos Klein finds himself confronted with a flood of images that sweep away his faith in the power of pictures. He meets Russian filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky and seizes an opportunity to accompany him during the shooting of his latest film, Vivan las Antipodas. In Patagonia, at Lake Baikal and in Shanghai, Kossakovsky explores the singular relationships between places and people on opposite sides of the world. Carlos Klein documents the making of Vivan las Antipodas, revealing the multifaceted personality of Kossakovsky and conveying his artistic convictions and motivations. Whether lingering in serious reflection about filmmaking, making Russian choir women laugh and himself cry, or jumping into abysses with sheer joy at the beauty of nature, Victor Kossakovsky films with a passion, and without reserve, true to his personal commandment: “Don’t film if you can live without filming.“ Carlos Klein calmly takes on the Russian filmmaker‘s effervescent temperament. As they travel, disagreements and conflicts become a source of inspiration for his quest. Where the Condors Fly is more than a making-of. It‘s a personal, critical and deeply humorous reflection about filmmaking and its possibilities and limitations
