Russian masterpieces: don't miss Zvyagintsev season at the British Film Institute
A still from Zvyagintsev's Leviathan

17 January 2018

A special series of events dedicated to Russian director Andrey Zvyagintsev is launching this February at the British Film Institute.

The programme includes screenings of Zvyagintsev’s acclaimed Oscar-nominated films Loveless and Leviathan, as well as earlier works such as The Return, The Banishment, and Elena.

A special panel event in partnership with the Calvert 22 Foundation, to take place on 12 February at 6:30pm at the BFI Reuben Library, will also be discussing the ethical, psychological and spiritual aspects of Zvyagintsev’s emotionally complex work, including his artistic influences (including Andrei Tarkovsky and Ingmar Bergman), his controversial reputation in Russia, and, the climate for filmmakers and other artists in Russia today.
