Cinema and Space: Ku!

V–A–C Sreda online magazine continues its three-month series of podcasts devoted to space and its reflection in culture, art, and the utopian dreams of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

In this episode, we talk about space in cinema. What prevented Soviet space cinema from evolving into a full-fledged phenomenon? Why did directors send children into space? What is spacialism, and can Kin-dza-dza! by Georgiy Daneliya be deemed a serious philosophical statement?

V–A–C Sreda editor Maxim Shibaev discussed these and other questions with Irina Kulik, an art critic, teacher, and doctor of literary studies, and with Varvara Tirakhova, a cultural critic and the editor-in-chief of Cinema Routine magazine.
