Recalling his first visit to Moscow five years ago, James mentioned that he was not aware what to expect from the Festival, because he had no idea about the Russian landscape gardening art: "I was honored to visit the historical Gorky Park and to see all the splendor of different gardens. I was pleased to see all that. Since then I began to return to Russia every year and every time I more and more admire the achievements of Russian landscape designers. During the Festival you can always find not only beautiful and artfully decorated gardens, but also the first of its kind, the original ideas ".

Garden idea about this film came to us quite suddenly. This is a story about brothers living in the majestic mountains of Montana, on the eve of the First World War. Being totally different brothers live a spiritual life, but with age it is becoming less common between them. All that they still have in common is a joint fishing, same as they used to have during their childhood.

There are no sharp turns in this story similar to nature itself. It is necessary to calmly and attentively observe in order to see more. The stunning beauty of Montana nature, it’s like you feel the majestic stillness of mountains, pristine beauty of forests, fascinating river flow.

25 CADRE OF TARKOVSKY
Designed by  Denis Kalashnikov, Ekaterina Bolotova

Art project "Cranberry"

Our garden is dedicated to the oeuvre of the famous filmmaker A. Tarkovsky. All his films are the stories about the place he was living, about Russian nature and Russian soul. Artistic imagery of cinema is the most appropriate language for Tarkovsky’s expression of the deepest intuitions concerning the essence and destiny of a person in our imperfect, but approaching perfection world. We tried to stop shots from the film "Stalker", "Solaris", "Mirror", "Andrei Rublev" and capture them in the garden.
