Lenfilm/Mosfilm: St. Petersburg–Moscow Rivalry on Screen

Russia’s first European city vs. the city of golden cupolas. The cradle of three revolutions vs. the capital of the Stalinist empire. The city of rock vs. the city of glamour. The St. Petersburg–Moscow rivalry underlies much of modern Russian history. This semester, the Soviet and Post-Soviet Club at the Polonsky Academy revisits this continuing confrontation and explores the ambiguities, tensions, and entanglements of urban life in Russia’s two most important cities. From light-hearted comedy to touching romance to intense psychological drama, this journey encompasses some of the best Russian films from the 1960s onward.

The screenings will take place at the Polonsky Auditorium on Mondays at 18:00, starting with a brief introduction by Dr. Pavel Vasilyev. All movies will be screened in the Russian original with English subtitles. After each screening, there will be an opportunity for informal discussion.
