Prior to his return, the Professor received a stipend from his brother-in-law, "Uncle Vanya" who lives on a meager salary and now resents the professor.
RFF - The Shooting Party Мой ласковый и нежный зверь (CTC)
An intoxicating viewing experience that feels like a hallucinatory excursion through an otherwise traditional story of innocence corrupted. Skillfully adapted from Chekhov's little-known second novel (written in 1884 when he was 24 years old) the film is rich in its imagery and sense of heedless, pre-revolutionary decadence. The film tells of the tragic fate of a pretty, naive but ambitious peasant girl who is willingly led astray by three men who take an interest in her.
RFF - Paradise Рай (CTC)
French-Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case. Jules grows fond of Olga and offers to go light on her punishment in exchange for sexual favours.

Shipped to a maximum brutality concentration camp, Olga is forced into a life of hell.
RFF - Gloss Глянец (CTC)
The Russian title of the film—Glianets—refers to all things stunning on the glossy pages of popular magazines.

Galia's dreams are shattered at Beauty magazine where she is told that she does not have a model's physique.
AMW - Take Me to the River (CTC)
**Part of Australian Music Week** "Take Me to the River" (Winner of over 10 festival awards including SXSW and Raindance London) is a film that brings multiple generations of award-winning Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together, following them through the creative process of recording a historic new album, to re-imagine the utopia of racial, gender and generational collaboration of Memphis in its heyday.
