Seven summer nights and seven films you will know very little about until the auditorium lights are dimmed. Seven summer nights and seven films our guests knew very little about until the auditorium lights were dimmed. They had minimal information, no expectations, and no pre-formed opinions. Unexpected impressions are a rarity – but they are almost always the most truthful and the most important.

The program of “WTF?!/What The Film?!” was сurated by Russian film critic Roman Volobuyev, who has contributed to Izvestia, Vedomosti, Premiere, Empire, and Afisha. He is currently a deputy chief editor at Russian GQ.

FILM OF THE DAY:

A brilliant young diplomat with an unimpeachable reputation has been appointed to an important post and is ready to serve his country when someone steals his wallet and gives it to a group of specially trained psychoanalysts.

A fascinating political detective drama by a recognized European master of fetish comedies for the blind. None of the main characters (and hardly any of the supporting characters) appears on the screen, a technique that is inexplicably seen by the audience as a relief and from which the film only benefits.
