2016年七月,在冰岛海岸20里开外,一个渔夫从大西洋的海岸中打捞出四卷电影胶片,内容为苏联著名演员米哈伊尔·扎罗夫主演的1969年电影《乡村侦探》。打捞出来的胶片画面与大卫·朗的配乐结合,在访谈画面与扎罗夫出演的大量影片内容中交织成一组声乐套曲,在赛璐璐上展现了相互持久交织的生活、历史与艺术。

In July 2016, four reels of "Derevensky Detektiv", a 1969 Russian film starring the Soviet-era character actor Mikhail Zharov (1899-1981), were found in a fisherman's net trawling the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, 20 miles off the Icelandic coast. The recovered footage is combined with original music by David Lang, and interwoven with interviews and clips from Zharov's lengthy filmography to form a song cycle, reflecting how life, history, and art intersect and endure on celluloid.
