Infinity According to Florian

Florìan Jur'jev wasn’t a filmmaker as such, even if moving images and the interaction of lights and sounds did play a major part in his art – which one could describe as the most expanded of cinema. Jur'jev was a painter who developed a whole theory of colour and musicality. He was an architect whose most famous creation was also used as a movie hall, and was designed to host what he called Light Theatre performances. And as a true man of the 20th century, he did, of course, shoot films – yet without ever feeling the need to finish them.

Here, in Radynski's essayistic paean in honour of his unique contribution to Modernism, a life spent in defiance of orthodoxy and conformism, one gets for the first time ever generous glimpses of these little gems begging to be revealed – as another side of this polymath’s genius.
