Dashkova Centre

Russian Film Week Scotland: Vmayakovsky (+discussion with James Rann, University of Glasgow)

The Princess Dashkova Russian Centre and Russian Film Week London proudly present:

Vmayakovsky

The actors become the characters of the film before the very eyes of the viewers: the poet, Vladimir Mayakovsky; the women he loved and the ones who left him; the friends who admired him and those who betrayed him; the ruthless "Knights of the Revolution" who proclaimed him their hero –  all this with the aim of making the audience relive Mayakovsky’s life and loves, his creativity and human drama as their own.

Shown in Russian with English subtitles

The film will be preceded by a short introduction from Dr James Rann (University of Glasgow), a Mayakovsky specialist. James will lead an audience discussion after the screening of the film.

Tickets cost £8/£5 and can be purchased via eventbrite in advance, or in cash on the door. (Free snack for advance ticket holders!)
