Immediately after the 32nd Kinotavr Open Russian Film Festival closes in Sochi, Garage will show three films from the festival’s program, selected and identified as significant by Garage Screen, at its summer cinema.
On September 27, the program will open with a special screening of the Kinotavr closing night film and one of the most interesting Russian releases of the year—Kira Kovalenko’s drama Unclenching the Fists. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s director Kira Kovalenko, producer Alexander Rodnyansky, and screenwriter Anton Yarush. The event at Garage will be the first screening of the film featuring its authors in Moscow.
On September 28 and 29, visitors can see the first Moscow screenings of two features from Kinotavr’s main competition: Grigory Dobrygin's tragicomedy At Close Distance and a new work by Natasha Merkulova and Alexey Chupov, Captain Volkonogov Escaped. The screenings will be followed by Q&As with the authors of the films.
