Pioner Cinema » Moscow International Film Festival

This year, Pioner became one of the Moscow International Film Festival’s official locations. Our theater’s program includes 6 MIFF films.

“Uppercase Print” is a film from one of the brightest and most radical Romanian directors today, Radu Jude: in his film, life is mixed with fiction, theater with cinema, and archival footage of socialist life with the present day. João Nuno Pinto’s “Mosquito” is an even-tempered Portuguese film about a World War I soldier who went to battle, but eventually got lost in the American jungle. A Korean crime thriller, “Beasts Clawing at Straws” tells a story of a group of people who fight for the right to a bag of money, while a new film by Kazakh director Adilkhan Erzhanov, “Black, Black Man” sends you to a remote province where, under the influence of circumstances, a police officer will have to remember why he became an investigator long ago. “Charlatan,” by Polish living legend Agnieszka Holland, takes you to the world of pre-war Czechoslovakia and introduces you to the life of a healer (or a charlatan) who managed to survive despite all the authorities. You will also be able to see a Belarusian horror film by Vladimir Zinkevich, “Spice Boys,” which clearly shows how a mere bad trip can lead to a tragic and terrible ending.
