A conversation with Aleksandr Sokurov, director of the film Moloch, presented at Torino Film Festival in the section Back to Life. He talks about the trilogy of power and his bond with literature, art, politics and poetics.

Moloch: In 1942, in a fortress in the Bavarian Alps, Adolf Hitler pays a visit to his lover Eva Braun, accompanied by Joseph and Magda Goebbels and Martin Bormann. The day unfolds monotonously, between vegetarian meals and walks in the mountains, paradoxical discussions and lovers’ spats, Richard Wagner and newsreels exalting the Nazi victories. Hitler is a childish, paranoid hypochondriac, his Fascist party leaders are jealous, grotesque servants, while Eva alone has the courage to be impertinent to her boss. The night passes away quickly, Hitler leaves to be “the father of the nation” again and the woman is alone once again in the deserted fortress.
