A Room and a Half

The prize-winning film on the Russian author Joseph Brodsky is the director’s film debut and a lyrical masterpiece. In an explosion of picutres, a visit by the exiled Brodsky to St. Petersborg, the city of his birth, is woven together with the story of his childhood after World War II. As a young man, Brodsky – who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1987 – said that Russia would be free when Pravda printed Proust. Conjuring up visual alchemy with music, animation and drama, the director pays reverence to literature and distilles Brodsky into his own film version of “Rememberance of Things Past”.
