Sands Films Cinema Club: Ivan’s Childhood

Stop The War Coalition screening , Ivan's Childhood / Film / 95 minutes / Soviet Union / O.V. Russian / Dir. Andrei Tarkovsky

Ivan’s Childhood Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky

Ivan’s Childhood / Film / 95 minutes / Soviet Union / O.V. Russian / Dir. Andrei Tarkovsky

Tarkovsky’s first feature is an antiwar film about a 12-year-old orphan who works as a spy for a Russian war attachment by crossing German lines. In one of many flashbacks, idea of the “looking glass” of memory is thus introduced, along with the idea of the horrorland, rather than wonderland, of war

Ivan’s Childhood (Russian, Ivanovo detstvo), sometimes released as My Name Is Ivan in the US, is a 1962 Soviet war drama film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky and co-written by Mikhail Papava and an uncredited Tarkovsky, based on Vladimir Bogomolov’s 1957 short story Ivan (Russian: ????).[3] The film features child actor Nikolai Burlyayev, Valentin Zubkov, Yevgeni Zharikov, Stepan Krylov, Nikolai Grinko, and Tarkovsky’s wife Irma Raush.

Ivan’s Childhood tells the story of orphan boy Ivan and his experiences during World War II. Ivan’s Childhood was one of several Soviet films of its period, such as The Cranes Are Flying and Ballad of a Soldier, that looked at the human cost of war and did not glorify the war experience as did films produced before the Khrushchev Thaw.[4] In a 1962 interview, Tarkovsky stated that in making the film he wanted to “convey all [his] hatred of war”, and that he chose childhood “because it is what contrasts most with war.”

Ivan’s Childhood was Tarkovsky’s first feature film. It won him critical acclaim and made him internationally known. It won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1962 and the Golden Gate Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival in 1962. The film was also selected as the Soviet entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 36th Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee. Famous filmmakers such as Ingmar Bergman, Sergei Parajanov and Krzysztof Kie?lowski praised the film and cited it as an influence on their work.

Stop The War Logo

Sands Films Studios presents great classic anti-war films during April and May with the collaboration of the Stop The War Coalition.

Stop the War was founded in September 2001 in the weeks following 9/11, when George W. Bush announced the “war on terror”. Stop the War has since been dedicated to preventing and ending the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere.

Stop the War opposes the British establishment’s disastrous addiction to war and its squandering of public resources on militarism. We have initiated many campaigns around these issues.

We are committed to supporting Palestinian rights, opposing racism and Islamophobia, and to the defence of civil liberties.

Stop the War has organised around 40 national demonstrations, including the largest protests ever held in Britain, most memorably on 15 February 2003, when up to two million gathered on London’s streets to oppose the Iraq war .

In 2013, Stop the War was central in mobilising opposition to UK bombing of Syria, as proposed by David Cameron’s government. This led to the historic decision in parliament when MPs voted against military intervention.

Other events which Stop the War has organised are thousands of public meetings across the country, direct action in the run up to UK wars – including walkouts from schools, colleges and workplaces – two People’s Assemblies, international peace conferences, vigils, lobbies of Parliament and anti-war cultural events.

Individuals can become members of Stop the War, and we welcome affiliations by supporting organisations and trade unions. Members and affiliates must support the aims of Stop the War as set out in our constitution.
