About the Season
Kino Klassika and the Institut Français present a series of six films from the decade that changed both cinema and the world: from beloved Soviet comedies to rarely-screened New Wave classics.
Beware of the Car, dir. Eldar Ryazanov (1966)
Screening Tuesday 18 January at the Ciné Lumière, London.
One of the most popular films in Soviet history, Beware of the Car blends sharp satire with affectionate nods to various cinematic traditions, from film noir to the silent comedies of Lloyd and Keaton.

Nine Days In One Year, dir. Mikhail Romm (1962)
Screening Tuesday 15 February at the Ciné Lumière, London.
Hailing from one of the most influential of all Soviet auteurs, Nine Days In One Year follows nuclear physicist Dmitry as he searches for an elusive particle. Alternating between high-tech expressionism and tender human drama, this scientific odyssey from Mikhail Romm taps into the hope and the fear of the post-war nuclear age.
