Youth! A film season in collaboration with MUBI, the UK’s leading online film streaming platform, showcases the Soviet New Wave’s most exhilarating films.
Youth! will see 9 of the Soviet New Wave’s most exhilarating films screened at Regent Street Cinema from May-June 2018. Unlike the classic films of the French New Wave, these films are still unknown outside of Russia. Most will be shown for the first time in the UK, certainly for the first time on their original formats.
This season is about the artists who predicted, lived through and survived the collapse of the Soviet Union. This will include films by:
- Georgiii Danilya
- Stanislav Rotstotsky
- Otar Iosseliani
- Kira Muratova
- Dinara Asanova
- Sergei Solovev
- Karen Shaknazarov
- Juris Podnieks
- Vasilli Pichul
- Rashid Naugmanov
Youth! is the possibility to introduce London audiences, young audiences, and the 100,000 MUBI subscribers who live in the UK, to some of the greatest and most audacious films of the 70s and 80s.
This programme is being developed in collaboration with MUBI, the UK’s leading online film streaming platform, and is co-curated by Konstantin Shavlovsky, weekend Editor of Kommersant.
