Films from St. Petersburg at Pushkin House

On Thursday, 23 October, Pushkin House kicks off a four-day film festival ‘Saint Petersburg: Take Another Look’. The programme includes nine films – documentary and feature, classic and contemporary – but all in some way are united by the city of Saint Petersburg.

The festival will be opened by Nepal Forever, Aliona Polunina’s tongue-in-cheek documentary on two communists’ fateful trip to Nepal, that will be followed by Andrey Khvostov’s charming Anglo-Russian romcom St Pete – Summer – Love.

Still from Nepal Forever

Friday will be marked by a documentary by Vladimir Nepevny about Sergei Kuryokhin, one of the most famous and brilliant composers of Russian rock and avant-garde music, and comedy horror film Shopping Tour from Mikhail Brashinsky.

On Saturday we’ll be watching unusual mystery A White White Night and a re-telling of Kafka’s classic novel The Trial, whereas Sunday will offer us a trio of works by cult director Aleksey Balabanov, starting with Happy Days, inspired by Samuel Beckett, moving to his lesser-known film, The Castle, based on Kafka’s novel of the same name, and closing with a disturbing masterpiece,  Of Freaks and Men.

All films will be screened with English subtitles and are FREE to attend (booking is essential). Please e-mail to reserve seats.
