Movie screening and discussion / Q&A with Aleksey Serebryakov and Sergey LivnevWinner of four Russian National Film Academy Awards (Nika), Van Goghs sensitively explores the complicated relationship between Mark Ginzburg, an artist, and his oppressive father Viktor, a famous conductor. Mark moved from Latvia to Israel just to escape his father’s shadow, but now circumstances have forced the two to live under the same roof again. Will they manage to see beyond their mutual dependency and rediscover the love they have for each other? An exceptionally moving film about families, and how they shape our expectations from – and perceptions of – life.Director: Sergey LivnevScreenplay: Sergey LivnevStarring: Aleksey Serebryakov, Daniel Olbrychski, Elena Koreneva Rated: 16+Length: 103 min.Genre: DramaSubtitles: EnglishAleksey Serebryakov is a Russian and Canadian stage performer and film actor.
