Free film - Commissar
« on: June 08, 2007, 05:12:42 PM »
8pm Monday 11th June, in the back room of The Victoria, top of Victoria Road. Free admission.

"Made in 1967 but banned in Russia for the next two decades, Askoldov's only film as a director is a beautiful, poignant meditation on war, religion, childhood and human nature. In it, pregnant Red Army commissar Klavdia Vavilova stays with an impoverished Jewish family during the 1917-22 civil war."

We are all in this together, but some of us are more in it than others (with apologies to George Orwell)
