2006 / Germany, Russia / 85min

Every morning during the last 25 years beach, hereditary photographer Eugeniy and his camel, bought in Kalmyk steppe, are on their way to their habitual working place – a beach at the Black Sea shore, a world of naked people. To be more correct: NUDE people, in all meanings of this word – nominal as well as figurative.

The film shows a variety of characters, which shape a unique portrait of the state of the human world in which we live. Both irony and melancholy, cleanliness and meanness, love stories and betrayal, life and death are depicted in their development.

Four years ago, Vitaly Mansky has been shooting “Broadway. Black Sea” on the same beach. Now you will meet many heroes from this previous film in “Wild, Wild Beach” again.

“…A brave, unflinching and willingly unpopular and unsavory film showing the most brutal face, and the muscle, of Putin-era Russia, cavorting on a summer beach. …”   (VPRO Joris Ivens Jury, IDFA 2006)
