Fifteen years in the making and shrouded in mystery, Ilya Khrzhanovsky’s "DAU" was anticipated with a mix of curiosity and apprehension. Sporadic reports from the behemoth set expressed doubt and confusion as to what the final product would look like: “Apocalypse DAU,” “The Movie Set that Ate Itself,” and “Inside DAU, the ‘Stalinist Truman Show’.” The project's premiere in 2019 was followed by a series of scandals and accusations of abuse and participation of neo-Nazis behind the project’s 700 hours of footage. Critical opinion remains polarized, sparking polemics about ethics, artistic ambition, and control.
