All are welcome!

On the 25 February we will be watching Brother (Brat), a 1997 Russian noir crime drama directed by Aleksei Balabanov, with English subtitles. The screening will be followed by a wine reception and discussion club supported by the Anything but Research fund.

Plot: “An ex-soldier with a personal honour code enters the family crime business in St. Petersburg, Russia.” (

Runtime:  96 min.

You will:

  • see a film about criminals and musicians.
  • get to love a humble provincial killer-philosopher, who ponders the nature of the evil and bad influence of big cities on people.
  • immerse yourself into the Russian music scene of the 1990s.
  • see one of the cult Russian movies of the 1990s, for which actors received little to no pay due to the low budget.
