    Documentary films from Oxford’s twin city of Perm- introduced in person by Vladimir Beresnev, artist and Curator of the Flahertiana Film Festival, Perm.

    The conflicted emotions of ex-Soviet air force pilots serving in Crimea, the joy of the man from Mali, living his dream as a tram driver in Siberian Irkutsk , the hope of the Tajik migrant to Moscow that he will break out of his casual work, and the mosaic of faces, stories and relationships in the third class seats of the Trans-Siberian Railway; all pictures of modern Russia captured by young film directors for the Flahertiana Film Festival in Oxford’s twin city of Perm on the edge of the Urals.

    The Oxford-Perm Association with some support from Oxford International Links has invited Vladimir Beresnev, Curator of the Flahertiana, university lecturer in Perm and a Board member of the Perm Museum of Modern Art to present four documentaries in person. Dr.Beresnev will also meet his opposite numbers at Oxford’s MOMA, with other meetings at Oxford schools in the planning. This visit is one of a continuing series between Oxford and Perm.

    “Overdrive”

    Director: Natalya Gugueva.
    ...follows the members and families of an elite fighter-bomber squadron in a series of flash-backs, news footage and interviews through the collapse of the Soviet Union, to their relocation from Ukrainian Crimea to the Russian Arctic and then, with the annexation of Crimea and the war in the Donbass, back to their old base in the sun. The constants in the film are Crimea itself, the loyalty to state and to squadron and the threat of war against erstwhile comrades. Aircraft-mounted cameras produce a lyrical celebration of the glamour and romance of flight, explaining in part why some of the men choose machines over personal relationships. Intransigent concepts of military obedience and honour alternate with the gentle observation of the emotional cost of families broken up and careers ruined by geopolitics.

    “Fellow Countryman” 

    Director: Anastasiya Evyerkova
    ...is a short film on a man from Mali whose ambition was to move to the USSR. Francis Dembele is seen at work as a tram driver in Irkutsk in the Siberian winter and in his rehearsals for broadcasts as a weatherman for the local TV. Filmed without obvious comment, the film still finds space for his personal beliefs and to touch tangentially on the costs and the richnesses of achieving his dream.
