Russian Film Week: Women in Film: "Harmony" & "Teriberka"


Q&A with film director, writer and producer: Lidia Sheinin
Russia: 2017 (Duration: 90 min or 59 min)

Age and fragile health force an elderly Russian lady to share her apartment with her niece and four children. Her former calm world surrounded by fine, family keepsakes and her beloved piano, are brought into danger by her young family’s wild energy. The two worlds forced into cohabitation could not be further apart: the remains of an affluent class versus, the literal and figurative, “proletariat”. 


Teriberka / Териберка 
Russia: 2017, 12+ (Duration: 41min)
Director: Yulia Varentsova

Teriberka is a small village on the shores of the Barents Sea, which has become famous thanks to Leviathan, the film by Andrei Zvyagintsev, as a symbol of Russia's backwoods and hopelessness. Entrepreneur Boris Akimov has decided to take advantage of Teriberka’s important growth potential and current fame. He plans to open seafood farms, cafes, hotels, and a festival of contemporary art. Will he succeed?
