Viktor Turin
Turksib, 1929
(USSR, 59mins, English subtitles)

Turksib charts the monumental efforts to build a railway linking the regions of Turkestan and Siberia in 1920s USSR. The film is remarkable for its use of montage and its portrayal of collective effort and modern engineering strength. A significant influence on the British documentary school, an English version of the film was prepared for exhibition by John Grierson in 1930. This remastered version features a newly commissioned soundtrack by Guy Bartell.

Screening begins at 6.30pm
