Join us for a screening of 'Revolution: New Art for a New World', hosted by SLOVO.

Acclaimed filmmaker Margy Kinmonth joins us for the screening of Revolution: New Art for a New World, a bold and exciting feature documentary that encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia.

This spectacular cinematic feast made to commemorate the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, demonstrates the crucial importance of art for the creation of the new regime. Gaining exclusive access to the vast collections of the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Russian Museum and the State Hermitage Museum, Kinmonth shows on the widescreen both works by celebrated artists, such as Marc Chagall, Wassily Kandinsky and Kazimir Malevich, and hidden gems by lesser-known avant-garde masters: Gustav Klutsis, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Varvara Stepanova, and Liubov Popova. With Revolution: New Art for a New World Margy Kinmonth provides both the art lover and the regular moviegoer with an interest in history, a fascinating journey through the world of Russian avant-garde following the 1917 Revolution.
