THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED
The Postman's White Nights (Andrei Konchalovsky, 2014, 111 mins) won that years' Silver Lion at the Venice film festival. It was shot in the beautiful, distant, independently-minded Russian north-west. All the actors are local to the area and non-professional: they play the people who live in the tiny isolated settlements of Lake Kenozero - only accessible from the mainland by boat.
We join the postman, the only connection with the outside world, on his day-to-day routes, and watch as personal stories unfurl and sometimes unravel.
Doors open 1830; screening starts 1900; screening ends 2050.
This event is free.
