"Nitschewo" is the Russian equivalent for "Doesn't matter". The film collage "The Country of Nitschewo" deals with the Russian myth as it was presented in the German cinema of the twenties and thirties. The film exclusively uses material from German films and texts which have been made between 1918 and 1939. The syntax of the film uses on the one hand techniques of the Russian avant-garde film and on the other hand stylistic devices which are more typical of the television and the Internet. The film tries to include the spectator in the legend without manipulating his consciousness.
