Join us for a live discussion with Nikita Lavretski, the man Cahiers du cinéma called "The Psychopath of Minsk". You can watch seven of his films now entirely for free on our platform. Lavretski will be in conversation with filmmaker Andrés Duque and curator Christopher Small.
Nikita Lavretski, an abrasive and indelible comedic voice from Belarus, is a zero-budget artist whose dazzling sense of invention, wild humour, and ceaseless productivity rival the energies of entire film industries. Our free-to-access retrospective features, along with six Lavretski films from 2015-19—a slate that includes his self-titled home-video opus Nikita Lavretski (2019)—the world premiere of a plaintive new 52-minute work entitled The Bear's Lair (2022).
Watch free from Monday 7th February, 2022.
