ARCC Russian Film Studies | Moscow Elegia| Alexander Sokurov | 1988| Free

Moscow Elegy is a documentary film about the later life and death of Soviet Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky. The film was originally intended to mark the 50th birthday of Tarkovsky in 1982, which would have been before his death. Controversy with Soviet authorities about the film’s style and content led to significant delays in the production.

 Russian Film Studies 2019

 ARCC introduces a 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!
