In her latest film, made at the age of 78, Kira Muratova brings together her favourite actors – from stars of Russian cinema to amateur actors who had worked with her previously – to act in a film about…casting.

Cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances
  • This is no ordinary film about acting, however, as the director employs a variety of cinematic devices to play with – and even trick – her audience. Through her much-loved use of the refrain and repetition, Muratova proves she continues to be fascinated with the aesthetic possibilities of the cinema.
