Russian film "Short stories" within the Brussels Film Festival 2013 (on the 19th of June 2013)

We invite everyone to see a fictional film of a Russian filmmaker Mikhail Segal within the Brussels Film Festival 2013.
Short Stories (2012) is an exhilarating cinematic ride that imbues social commentary with a rich understanding of the need for entertainment. 

When a young writer's manuscript is rejected at a stylish publishing house, it somehow finds its way into the hands of various employees, with each of their lives curiously influenced by the prose it contains.

Mikhail Segal shows the life of today’s Russia, a country on the move. Each of publishing professionals who read these four stories presents a characteristically Russian perspective on the changing face of society and paints a humorously droll portrait of the ever changing face of Russian identity.

Combining concerns over the Westernisation of modern Russia with issues of corruption, the role of culture, religious belief systems and the widening generation gap between Soviets and non-Soviets, the author not only bestows us with a fascinating study of its country of origin, but also presents us with universal issues that just happen to be magnified by the communal unrest in Putin's Russia.  

A moving, satyrical, funny and melodramtaic take on this highly entertaining piece of cinema.

On the 19th of June, at 10 pm.

Flagey, Place Sainte-Croix, 1050 Ixelles, Brussels

Ticket price: 7,5 euros
