Featured Screening: Khrustalyov, My Car! at Film Society of Lincoln Center
Today is the opening of War and Remembrance: The Films of Aleksei Guerman (variously spelled Alexei Gherman or German), a comprehensive seven-film series spanning 1967 to 2009 including all five films by the unheralded Russian filmmaker along with his 1967 debut co-directed with Grigori Aronov. The series is rounded out with a 2009 documentary about Guerman by critic Alexander Pozdnyakov.
Khrustalyov, My Car! is, to date, Guerman’s most recent and only post-Soviet film. (His most recent, History of the Arkanar Massacre, was conceived decades ago and has been in production since 2000. Like Stalker by Andrei Tarkovsky, to whom Guerman is held in similar esteem by many, it is an adaptation of a science fiction novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky.) As with his earlier Trial on the Road, which also screens this afternoon, Khrustalyov has roots with the director’s father, author Yuri Guerman. Its plot concerns a general who is ignominiously arrested as part of an obscure plot. Regarded as one of Guerman’s most visually stunning movies, it was described by Anton Dolin as “Guerman’s first post-Soviet, uncensored, truly free, and irrovocably avant-garde film . . . nothing less than phantasmagoric—the dreamlike construction of a paranoid mind.”
Khrustalyov screens again tomorrow afternoon and Saturday evening, and the Guerman series runs through Tuesday.
Filmmakers Shelly Silver and Emily Vey Duke & Cooper Battersby are in attendance for tonight’s installment of Flaherty NYC at 92YTribeca.
