Russian Ark, A. Sokurov, Russia, 2002

The first feature film shot in a single take, Russian Ark takes us through a museum to visit ghosts of the past, from a tyrannical Peter the Great to the doomed Tzar Nicholas II.

“The movie's smooth voyage comes to seem like a dream play, suspended painlessly in time.”
Village Voice

“Despite an undeniable attraction to the majestic, Aleksandr Sokurov seems equally adverse to straightforward spectacle, approaching potentially colossal subjects from odd, specific angles.”
Slant Magazine

A bar will be open serving wines, beers, soft drinks and cake.
