When: Mon., March 16, 7 p.m. 2015

Uncompromising and visionary Russian director Aleksei Gurman's final film, about a scientist from our Earth doing a sort of ethnological study of a medieval society on the planet Arkanar. “With a glistening black-and-white palette, he smears the screen with mud, blood, and excrement; he displays a mad glee in designing, building, and deploying grotesque tools of torture and murder; his roving, wide-angle closeups render the teeming cast as living gargoyles,” said The New Yorker.
