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 residents of a tiny village in the Urals discover that their land has been deceitfully appropriated by a mysterious Moscow oil magnate. At first, they expose and execute the invader’s accomplices among the townspeople with especial cruelty. Then they set out for Moscow, find the magnate and, after disposing of him just as cruelly, return their land to its rightful owner.

“This is about Russian rebellion – far from meaningless, but definitely merciless. Any war fought by peasants is pure savagery. Lutsik’s heroes behave themselves brutally, albeit with imagination, and without menace – quite pragmatically. Their brutality is almost zealous. Lutsik grasped the thoroughness of the rebellion, its dedication, its tenacity with the same strength that his characters scared us with.” – Mikhail Trofimenkov

Admission is free with advance registration. The film will be shown from the 35mm original. Before the screening, there will be an introduction by film critic Denis Gorelov.
