Part of Putin’s Russia: A 21st Century Film Mosaic
Saturday, July 7, 2018, 7:00 p.m.
Kaufman Astoria Studios – Zukor Theater

Please note new location: This screening will be held next door at the Zukor Theater at Kaufman Astoria Studios, 34-12 36 St (enter on 35 St, just north of 35 Ave).

Dir. Andrey Zvyagintsev. 2017, 127 mins. Digital projection. In Russian with English subtitles. With Maryana Spivak, Aleksey Rozin, Matvey Novikov, Marina Vasileva, Andris Keiss. Divorcing middle-class thirtysomethings Zhenya (Spivak) and Boris (Rozin) are so through with each other that they have already embarked on new lives with new partners, leaving only their well-appointed apartment and twelve-year-old son Alexey as the remaining hurdles to liberation. Neglected and feeling unwanted, Alexey disappears, which neither parent even notices until the authorities and rescue teams become involved. A biting critique of modernity and moral complacency that also posits characters of depth and complexity, such that everyone, young and old, bureaucrat and ordinary citizen, seems lost, without any notion of how to live or care for one another. Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, and Winner of a Jury Prize at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
