STORY OF THE FLAMING YEARS, THE in 70mm

Screening in 70mm

[Повесть пламенных лет POVEST PLAMENNYKH LET]
In 1941, German troops invade Russia and a young Soviet, Ivan Orlyukov, begins a deathly campaign to expel the Germans. Solntseva's poetic and sumptuously lyrical war film THE STORY OF THE FLAMING YEARS garnered her the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival the year of its release, the first win for a female director. No woman would win that award again until Sofia Coppola, with THE BEGUILED at this year's Cannes Film Festival. (Note courtesy of Museum of the Moving Image.)
