Experiment 5IVE is an anthology of five films of five minutes each by five well-known Russian directors, inspired and financed by the chewing gum company Wrigley. The idea derives from the fact that the brand’s 5IVE REACT gum has the curious feature of tasting differently for every person that tries it—hence the anthology’s press, hyping how each mini-film “offers to the viewer the opportunity to ponder the individuality and unrepeatability of his own perceptions”. The five shorts are:
- Sunrise/Sunset by Pyotr Buslov
- Bloodrop by Aleksei Popogrebsky
- Portrait (Портрет) by Aleksandr Veledinskiy
- Atlantica (Атлантика) by Igor Voloshin
- Secret (Тайна) by Andrey Zvyagintsev
