The second of the Russian Resurrection Film Festival monthly screenings takes us to the dark era of World War 2 and the holocaust, in a visually poetic and powerful piece. Anna’s War will be shown at Event Cinemas Innaloo this Sunday, June 30.
Anna’s War is an incredibly moving experiment by award-winning Russian film director Aleksey Fedorchenko. The film tells the story of a little Jewish girl, Anna who hides herself in a disused fireplace of the Nazi commandant’s office. From there she views the war and life passing by. Anna’s War disposes this difficult subject matter with an imaginative twist and leaves its viewers mesmerised for days. Winner of Best Film at the 2019 Russian Golden Eagle Awards and NIKA 2019.
With a new film every month, it should sate any desire for Russian cinema till the film festival itself in November.
Anna’s War screens this Sunday, June 30 at Event Cinemas Innaloo. For details check Event Cinemas or the Russian Resurrection Film Festival website.
