“DOKer” at Karo 11 October Theater is an international festival of documentary cinema that focuses on indie documentaries from all over the world, both feature-length and shorts. The documentaries range from newsreels and mockumentaries to art house and popular science films, from classical to experimental. “Granny Project” is about three guys who try to reconcile with their family heritage by studying the incredible lives of their grandmothers: an English spy, a dancer from Nazi Germany and a Hungarian communist who survived the Holocaust. “The Debut” is a film about women from a Belarusian correctional facility producing a play at a regular theater, while their every step is under constant supervision.

Vladimir Yankilevsky at MMOMA
Don’t miss this large-scale retrospective devoted to the 80th anniversary of one of the central figures in Moscow’s non-conformist art movement, Vladimir Yankilevsky, who, unfortunately, didn’t live to see the exhibition — he passed away last January. The exhibition features more than 200 of his works, including his famous collages and assemblages, from both Russian and foreign collections (including the Centre Pompidou, Russian Museum, and the Tretyakov Gallery), as well as from the artist’s personal collection.
