Jumpman (Podbrosy) + Q&A
Tue 27 Nov 20:30 NFT2
Russia 2018. Dir. Ivan I. Tverdovskiy. With Denis Vlasenko, Vilma Kutaviciute, Anna Slyu, Daniil Steklov. 95min. Digital. EST. 15
Inspired by real events, Ivan Tverdovsky’s third feature film again points the camera lens at parental neglect and the deeply immoral and corrupt society in which his characters live. The Jumpman of the title is Denis, a teenager who suffers from a condition that renders him insensitive to pain. Abandoned by his mother as a baby, he is later reunited with her when she recruits him as a ‘jumpman’ - someone who literally throws himself in front of harm’s way for financial gain. Referencing abandoned babies, superhuman resistance to pain and villainous grown-ups, Jumpman is a dark and thrilling fairytale for our times.

Sat 1 Dec 13:00 NFT3
Switzerland, China, Russia, South Korea, USA 2018. Dirs Christian Frei, Maxim Arbugaev. 112min. Digital. EST. 12A
Peter Grigoriev searches for mammoth tusks in remote Siberia to sell, whilst brother Semyon Grigoriev and other geneticists investigate the possibility of cloning a woolly mammoth back from the dead. Frei and Arbugaev’s intricate documentary investigates morality in humanity’s ambition to play God, winning the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Cinematography at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Asino (Osel) + Q&A

Switzerland, Russia 2017. Dir Anatoly Vasilyev. Cast: donkey Apollo, donkey Ares, donkey Fina, donkey Pirandello, donkey Zeus et al. 167min. Digital. EST. 12A
Anatoly Vasilyev’s feature length debut places the donkey as a hero throughout history, from Jesus Christ riding one into Nazareth in the Old Testament to modern day Italy’s Palio di Siena donkey racing celebrations. Vasilyev uses eight short stories (novellas), mixing documentary with divine mythology, to summarise and comment on the animal’s role in Western culture.

We are pleased to announce this additional film:

When Yuriy, the captain and star striker of Russia’s football team, misses a penalty and lashes out at an opponent and his fans, he is shunned from the game and forced into an early retirement.
