Festival Notes: The year 2012 – commemorates the bicentenary of Russia’s 1812 defeat of Napoleon, celebrates 70 years of Australia-Russia diplomatic relations and marks the ninth Russian Resurrection Film Festival. The largest festival of Russian Cinema outside of Russia today returns to screens Australia-wide this August and September sharing powerful cinematic moments in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth.

This year’s selections include:

  • Vysotsky, the most successful Russian box office film of 2011-2012
  • The hauntingly powerful crime thriller Home
  • Two Days – The classic Russian conflict between intellectuals and the rich and powerful as to what is to be done with Russia’s future.
  • Gromozeka is a bittersweet drama that combines the parallel lives of former band members twenty years on and how their lives continue to intersect.
  • The multi-award winner, There Once Lived a Simple Woman
  • Match, a story of love, football and war that is based on a true war story.
  • Festival favourite, Shakhnazarov returns with a remarkable war flick, White Tiger – a mystical tale about an indestructible Nazi tank.
  • A spy-thriller appropriately named Spy
  • 2012 features not one, but two retrospectives – classic Chekhov screen adaptations (The Duel & Mikhalkov’s much loved Unfinished Piece for a Player Piano) which complement the new romantic interlude about Chekhov himself.
