Spiritual Voices (Disc 1 of 2) (1995)
In 1994, Sokurov accompanied Russian troops assigned to a frontier military post at the Tajikistan/Afghanistan border to film their experiences. Through Russia had pulled out of its war with Afghanistan in 1989, a shadowy enemy still dogged the Russian troops along the border. Sokurov effectively captures what it is like to be there as a Russian soldier -- the isolation, the mood of futility, and the harsh environment.

Spiritual Voices (Disc 2 of 2) (1995)
How do you wage war with an enemy who surrounds you at all times but remains forever out of sight? This was the question raised by filmmaker Alexander Sokurov as he journeyed to the Tajikistan-Afghanistan border to interview the Russian soldiers trapped in a perpetual state of danger and desolation. As the weary soldiers await the arrival of an enemy who may never materialize, Sokurov embeds himself with them to offer one of the most unique and involved portrayals of military quandary ever committed to celluloid. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
