The Lumière brothers visited St. Petersburg in 1896 with their films and their little projector to show their invention. Film was shot for the first time in Russia that same month to capture the coronation of the Zsar Nicholas II at the Kremlin. That was the spark that lit the imaginary of one of the most relevant countries for filmmaking, contributing with innovative cinematic techniques, and some of the most important principles of filmmaking such as Eisenstein ideas for montage. Russia is a cultural giant that has produced masterpieces such as Battleship Potemkin, Man With A Movie Camera or Solaris, and now fights silence and oblivion with jewels such as Burnt By The Sun, The Russian Ark and last years’ Leviathan. State of the art montage and emotion.

Speaker: Jaime Dezcallar, Film Director. Moderator: Fernando Dameto, Deputy Director of IE Humanities Center
