FESTIVAL: "Saint Petersburg: Take Another Look" Film - 'A White White Night'

A White, White Night ('Belaya, belaya noch', 2014, 90 minutes) dir. Ramil Salakhutdinov; in Russian with subtitles 

Film starts at 14:30

A detective film with some serious depth. Called back from Moscow on a search for a missing person, this is a story of a man forced to plunge into the past, reminded at every turn of the previous life he led in Saint Petersburg. He must come to terms with the present to move forward - and on top of it all, he's not even sure he's awake. The over-arching presence of St Petersburg, sometimes benign, sometimes threatening, bears witness to his journey.

The screening is free, but booking is essential. Email office@pushkinhouse.org.uk to reserve your space.
