Punky biopic about the legendary band Kino and the Leningrad underground music scene in the early 1980s. Full of surrealistic interludes and rebellious energy.
Punky biopic about the Leningrad underground music scene in the 1980s, based on the early years of pop icon Viktor Tsoï and his legendary band Kino. With Bowie, Blondie and T. Rex in the cassette recorder they charge themselves up for their performances, but the censor is listening in. Full of surrealistic interludes and rebellious energy.
This week we’re also announcing the first films in our programme:
A Russian biopic by Kirill Serebrennikov, which follows Viktor Tsoi in the Leningrad underground rock culture of the early 1980s.
A playful narrative by João Vladimiro about a boy left as the last survivor in his village.
