Film: Anna’s War

30 June @ Event Cinemas, Innaloo ·
Presented by Russian Resurrection Film Festival ·

Anna’s War is an incredibly moving experiment by award-winning Russian film director, Aleksey Fedorchenko. Set during WWII, 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.

This May, The Russian Resurrection Film Festival presents a special screening of Russia’s newest period action flick, Tobol: The Conquest of Siberia, at  Event Cinemas in Innaloo.

Based on actual historical events, Tobol: The Conquest of Siberia takes place in Russia during the reign of Peter I at a time of the empire’s complex formation when bloody feuds and external enemy encroachments are commonplace. The film follows Ivan Demarin, a young officer of Tsar Peter’s new guard, who is sent on assignment to Siberia, to a border town of Tobolsk. Here, he meets his first love and but also faces mortal danger when hostile Dzungar hordes attack.

The screening is a part of a series of film screenings The Russian Resurrection Film Festival will present at Event Cinemas over the next four months. Each month will feature a new Russian blockbuster aimed at introducing audiences to films they’d not likely see anywhere else.

With a production quality and action sequences that rival that of 2000’s epic Gladiator, we’re sure that this fast-paced film will have audiences captivated from beginning to end.”
