Having the opportunity to share such incredible films with you is made even more exciting when we have a special guest Q&A! At May’s Screen One showing of Leviathan we were honoured to welcome Russian stage and film star Alexey Serebryakov. The film is outstanding, with stunning cinematography and a beautifully acted, deeply tragic story. What a complete pleasure to have Alexey join us and speak about the film and his role of Kolya.
It was also our pleasure to have Arkady Spivak, Artistic Producer of Talk Is Free Theatre attend as our translator for the evening. His wit and grace made him, as always, a perfect host. It was a great evening, thank you to everyone who came out!
