Event Details

Anglo Russian Culture Club presents...

Documentary films about Russia, screenings and talks with the director:

ALIONA VAN DER HORST

In her 20 years of filmmaking Aliona van der Horst (born in in Russia, raised in the Netherlands) has received multiple international awards for her films, which are screened at film festivals around the world. Because of her personal, poetic and cinematic vision, her films are profoundly compelling and touching. Her most recent film, Love is Potatoes, won a number of awards, including the Golden Calf Award (Dutch Oscar) in 2018.

 

Her films revolve around the question of how ordinary people's lives are shaped by historical events.  By zooming in to a very intimate level she tells a universal story full of compassion.  Most of her work deals with Russia, a country with which she has a love/hate relationship. Retrospectives of her work were held in Barcelona, Kiev and Belgrade. She is a member of the Documentary branch of AMPAS.

RUSSIAN FILM STUDIES 2020

ARCC contiunes its' series of Russian-speaking films rarely or never seen in the UK. These films will be introduced from a transcultural perspective. We encourage our members and audiences to move away from revivalist narratives of origin, nation, and belonging and to reflect critically on vicissitudes of history and art in Russian-speaking space - both inside and outside Russia. We emphasise interconnectedness and complexity of experiences that shape individual and collective imaginaries and the importance of a continuous scholarly and artistic dialogue.


The screening will be preceded by a presentation starting at 6.00 PM and may last up to 45 minutes. Please do not eat in the cinema, please do not use your mobile devises during the talk nor the screening. Upon leaving the cinema, if you have not done so online, please make a donation towards our running costs and support your club. Thank you!
