Andrey Zvyagintsev Season + Director Q&A | Irish Film Institute (IFI) | Tuesday, 23. January 2018

Andrey Zvyagintsev has, with the release of Loveless, his fifth film as director, solidified his reputation as one of the greatest writer-directors working today, his films bearing comparisons to those of Andrei Tarkovsky and Bela Tarr.

Ostensibly a police procedural drama focusing on a separating couple as they search for their missing son, the film – similar to all of his work – has much to say about the disaffection and malaise of contemporary Russian society.

The IFI is delighted to welcome Andrey Zvyagintsev to present a preview of Loveless on Sunday 28th of January 2018 at 19.40, followed by a Q&A. We will also present a complete retrospective of his feature films on the following dates:
