Red Front: 75 Years of Russian War Cinema

Watershed Recommends: Fri 29 May - Thu 4 June

Earlier in the year we partnered with the Kino Klassika Foundation to bring you a season of Russian musicals. We're thrilled to partner with them again to celebrate their season Red Front - 75 Years of Russian War Cinema.

This season includes rarely screened and remarkable recent and classic titles from great directors of Russian language cinema including famed directors Aleksei Germann and Andrei Konchalovsky, contemporary director Sergei Loznitsa, female director Tatyana Lioznova, as well as Yuri Norstein, widely considered to the be greatest animator of all time.

These are the films you can still watch as part of the season:

  • 17 Moments of Spring (1973) Dir: Tatyana Lioznova (streaming now until Sat 30 May)
  • Ordinary Fascism (1965) Dir: Mikhail Romm (streaming from Tue 26 May, 12:00)
  • Paradise (2016) Dir: Andrei Konchalovksky (streaming from Sat 30 May, 12:00)
