The second-part in the RUSSIAN ARK director’s trilogy on family (after MOTHER & SON), this mysterious ‘incarnation of a fairytale’ traces the extremely close relationship between a father and his son – a war vet and an army recruit. Raw physicality pervades in an intimate film composed of embraces, distorted framing, golden-filtered photography and layered imagery. In other words – Sokurov. Film critic and TV journalist Mark Cousins will introduce the film and sign copies of his new book The Story of Film (available in the bookshop) following the 6.20pm screening on Tue 19 Oct. Cousins is an author, film historian, producer and documentary director, known for the BBC-TV filmmaker interview series and book Scene by Scene.
