70 mm / Homage Marina Vlady


As part of our ongoing series of projections in large analogue format and our tribute to Marina Vlady, we are showing an original print of SUZHET DLYA NEBOLSHOGO RASSKAZA (Subject for a Short Story, Sergei Yutkevich, USSR/France 1969). The film begins with Anton Chekhov reminiscing on his time with Lydia Mizinova, aka Lika, (Marina Vlady). It was his sister who introduced him to the young teacher, also a gifted singer. The two maintained an ongoing ambiguous relationship. Mizinova is thought to have been the main inspiration for Nina in "The Seagull". Yutkevich's episodic film is masterful in terms of form and color – it is an enchanting ode to the early cinema era. The director stages his actors in theatrical sets, using rear projection and flashbacks to convey a sense of the past and nostalgia but also magic. (gv) (31.7., Introduced by Marina Vlady)
