Pioner Cinema and Kommersant Weekend present "The History of Russian Cinema in 50 Films," dedicated to the Year of Russian Film. The curator will be film critic and Weekend author Mikhail Trofimenkov.
The commander of a partisan brigade sends three fighters – Yulia, Pavel, and Sergey – on a combat mission. Only a few minutes after their departure, German commandos destroy the entire brigade. Many years later, after WWII comes to an end, the KGB begins to look for the traitor responsible for the vicious attack – and suspects that it must be one of the three survivors who went out on that mission. In order to determine which of them to arrest, investigators organize a meeting between all three.
“The search for a traitor is merely an excuse to gather heroes who were not just lost in the war, but who had actually avoided each other. They are gathered together in order to find out just how unhappy each of these young veterans are. In order to see how Sergey and Pavel lose their heads upon seeing each other, and how this reaction burst out from inside the vast and soulless set pieces of Stalinist architecture. Strictly speaking, the film is about how these set pieces fall down, fear disappears, youth returns, and silence passes.” – Mikhail Trofimenkov.
Entrance to the screening is free with advance registration. The film will be shown from the 35mm original. Before the screening, opening marks will be read by Denis Gorelov.
