A tribute to renowned Soviet film director, Mikhail Kalik (1927-2017) and his films with music scores by internationally acclaimed composer, Mikael Tariverdiev.

A great name of 60’s Soviet cinema, Kalik’s films were banned, shelved and almost forgotten. Two short documentaries will be shown exploring Kalik and Tariverdiev’s work as well as stylish film To Love (1968).

Presented by London composer and the Real Tuesday and Weld frontman Stephen Coates, and Golden Unicorn Awards Jury member, film scholar Olga Sherwood.
