Seasonal Special Happenings

Russian Cinema

When: Sat., April 12 2014

Director Aleksandr Sokurov won numerous awards for his 2011 flick Russian Ark, a film about 300 years of Russian history that he delivered in one single take. In 2011’s Faust, a version of Goethe’s tragedy, he imagines what it was like for the desperate Faust (Johannes Zeiler) when he sold his soul to a pawnbroker (Anton Adasinsky). Filmed in soft sepia tones and characterized by overdubbed dialogue, the film plays out like some kind of grotesque nightmare. It shows at 9 tonight and at 3:45 p.m. on Sunday at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
