About Russian Film Week 2019: Great Poetry and Q&A with director Alexander Lungin

(Russia, 2019, 18+, 123 min. Director: Alexander Lungin)

Two cash collectors on the outskirts of Moscow spend their lives moving money for other people and betting on cockfights at a dorm for migrant workers. Daydreaming of high ideals, they enrol in a poetry class. Their attempts to find poetry in a prosaic world lead the men to conclude that the only poetic move they can make is... to rob a bank.

We are pleased to welcome Alexander Lungin for Q&A after the film. After Q&A, there will be an informal wine reception - all audience welcome.
