Screening of rare 35 mm print of the only Soviet film to win the Cannes Palme d’Or, The Cranes Are Flying, a masterpiece on every level—direction, cinematography, acting, editing and soundtrack. Filmed in Protected content upended the tight controls and platitudes of the cinema industry in the USSR, and also left its mark internationally, especially for its mobile camerawork and expressive editing. That it did so despite being a war movie, defying all the expectations of rote patriotism and telling the stories of everyday, imperfect people touched by the maelstrom with subtlety and sympathy, is even more remarkable. In Russian with English subtitles.
