Cinematic Chimera: Russian Ark
Thursday, October 28, 2010, 7:30 PM

A single camera drifts through the 33 rooms of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, tracing Russia's history from the 18th century to the present day. Filmed in one 90-minute continuous shot, Russian Ark subtly interweaves dance, opera, theater, and music in this poetic meditation on the flow of history.

Check out a trailer for the film here.
