FILM: I am twenty / “Мне 20 лет”
February 20, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This film is part of the movie series- “Death, Secrets, and Lies” with an introduction by Dr. Radik Lapushin
In the story, a young man palling around in Moscow with his friends is forced to confront the realities of his future and choose a direction in which to go. His friends are likewise brought up short by their limited opportunities for realizing their dreams. They have jobs or schools waiting for them, which are things their parents didn’t have, so their older relatives are puzzled by the youngsters’ evident distaste for their choices. Some of the restored scenes include one in which the boy meets his father’s ghost, and a long scene which takes place at a poetry reading. The ghost scene, among others, represented a significant break from hitherto obligatory film conventions of social realism.
