“WTF?!/What The Film?!” seeks volunteers for a risky psychological experiment. 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 charming pensioner who murdered several tens of thousands of people in the past and the rescued a large car company from bankruptcy shares his life experiences with an invisible companion who occasionally shouts at him from behind the camera.

This film was originally planned as a two-minute fragment for a very different movie and took its present form only from a misunderstanding: an elderly actor had forgotten that he had to go home, and the director was too humble to remind him of it. The film was shot with the only camera ever made with human eyes drawn on its lenses. A multiple award-winner, including Oscar for best speaking horror film.
