The Arts Junction is proud to present, as our opening night of the 2008/09 Soviet Cult Films Season, the Oscar non-winning director Georgi Daneliya 1986 sci-fi-comedy Kin-dza-dza!, starring Yuri Yakovlev (The Idiot, Anna Karenina) and Yevgeny Leonov (famous comedian).

The film is masterfully filmed by Daneliya with outstanding creativity and given scarcity of technical means; with amazing insight showing the culture clash of socialist and market societies, East and West mentalities in the disguise of intergalactic encounters just before "Perestroika" happened.

This is an 'all-men movie'; women play a little part in it which is one of the characteristics of Daneliya's movies.

After the action settles down, please join us for an all Russian "zakuski" reception after the film. It's a great chance to get to know the Margret bar and the Margret's amazing host Chris as well as talk about the film and mingle with other movie lovers!

Please RSVP if you are planning to attend: olga.artjunction@gmail.com

There are have been some really shady people at this bar lately. I came here last summer and it was a riot. But now I would never recommend coming here. I am not sure if it the staff or the clientele but it has been getting emptier and emptier and the music is shit.
