Synopsis:
The genre of the film DUST could be called fantastic realism or existential drama with elements of the fantastic. Dust means the haste in which people live. Dust is a common misconception, the natural clogging up of the brain. Specks of dust how scientists perceive people, scientists who think they know more than anyone else about the universe.

Biography:
Sergei Loban was born in Moscow in 1972. He graduated from the Moscow Institute of Electronics and Maths. In 1995, he organised with friends a club in a derelict basement near the Moscow River which, for two years, functioned as the epicentre of non-official culture. In 2001 the independent Belarusian newspaper Navinki invited Sergei and his creative team SVOI 2000 to make a film based on a script of one of the leaders of the Belarusian underground. As a result the first independent Belarusian film was made with a budget of $1000.
