“Nepal Forever” 2012, director: Aliona Polunina (95 minutes); in Russian with subtitles
Film begins at 6pm
A documentary-comedy focusing on the activities of two Russian communists. As committed Leninists, both have served several terms as city council members. Their horizons are broad, but their true concern is the future of global communism.
At one point, by decree of Fate, their booming activities begin to expand far beyond the boundaries of their native St. Petersburg and the Russian Federation - all the way to Nepal.
The future of global communism is still uncertain - all we know for sure is the fact that in the modern world the tail still wags the dog.
Russian director Aliona Polunina graduated from the Higher Courses of Scriptwriters and Directors in Moscow in 2004 - and her work has won prizes at many festivals. This film won awards at the Cinemaxxi and Ficunam film festivals, and was awarded a special mention by the jury at the 8th International Film festival in Rome.
