Sokurov and Steadicam Operator Tilman Buttner on set during the shooting of Russian Ark (2002)
Throughout November and December BFI Southbank is celebrating the work of one of Russia’s greatest living filmmakers, Aleksandr Sokurov.
Famous for shooting his 2002 film Russian Ark in one uniterrupted shot, Sokurov is far from a being gimmicky cineaste, having made some of the most beautiful and just-damn-intelligent films of the last 20 years. If you haven’t already, check out The Sun, a biographical film of Emperor Hirohito in the final days of World War II. I was blown away.
Courtesy of BFI, we have 2 pairs of tickets to any film in the season – subject to availability. December. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name. The tickets will go to the first five people who contact us.
