RusClub #8 takes place on Tuesday 26 August and the movies that will be shown are:
1. Inside a Square Circle (Внутри квадратного круга) (2011) by Valery Shevchenko (documentary, 17 min)
"After a visit to the most important Russian christmas tree, children go to Cathedral Square, where their parents are waiting."
2. Ya tozhe khochu (2012) by Aleksey Balabanov (83 min)
"This film is a brilliant view on Russia today. Hundred years ago, it was a large empire, with people who had faith and a sense of life. Today, it's a raped country: 70 years of the Soviet Union have left people without a ground under their feet. The movie shows Saint-Petersburg, a once brilliant empire's capital, and follows the life of some of its current citizens : a killer, a bad musician, an alcoholic, a poor old man, and an unfortunate prostitute.
These people don't talk very much, just because there's nothing left to talk about. They go to a place with no return way -- without any doubt, as they have nothing to loose. All they possess, is a wish to be happy. And may be some of them really deserve it..."
