DESCRIPTION

For the third year in a row Garage Screen summer cinema will become one of the venues of Center Festival, an annual documentary film festival about urban culture and contemporary society that takes place in Moscow and Saint Petersburg at the beginning of September. The festival is organized by Documentary Film Center and Museum of Moscow. The festival program includes Russian premieres of documentary hits from the current festival circuit that explore issues related to urban and social life.

Through contemporary documentaries the festival aims to present the city as a space for social interaction, as well as to uncover the most important trends that shape the contemporary world and the place of humans in it. This year's program consists of four sections: Society, Culture, Film Archive and a selection of short films that make up the festival's first National Competition.

The Society section combines films about the most acute social topics: cyberspace and its legislation, the era of post-truth, and the transforming paradigm of success. The Culture section presents works dedicated to people from different fields of art, eras, and political spaces who share a feeling of defiance of established aesthetic canons and resistance to social stereotypes. Film Archive looks at the issues of modern world through the lens of film history.

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art will host three Russian premieres—Netizens from the Society section and two films about artists Kusama—Infinity and Poor Folk. Kabakovs, as well as the only Moscow screening of We Margiela which will be the closing event of the festival.

Curator—Maya Kuzina.
