ARCC introduces a series of Russian-speaking films rarely or never seen in the UK. These films will be introduced from a transcultural perspective. The programme concentrates on moving away from revivalist narratives of origin, nation, and belonging,  and on reflecting  critically on vicissitudes of history and art in Russian-speaking space – both inside and outside Russia.


We emphasise interconnectedness and complexity of experiences that shape individual and collective imaginaries and the importance of a continuous scholarly and artistic dialogue.
