CINEMA BY DESIGN: ART + DESIGN ON SCREEN

Alexander Sokurov’s dreamlike vision of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg broke boundaries as the first feature-length narrative film shot in a single take. The film takes the point-of-view of an unseen narrator as he explores the architecture and collection of the museum and travels through Russian history. The audience sees through his eyes as he witnesses less documented moments in history, like Peter the Great abusing one of his generals; Catherine the Great desperately searching for a bathroom; and, in the grand finale, the sumptuous Great Royal Ball of 1913. In Russian and Persian with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
