People are fragile. I try to be careful with them (interview)
In the House of Culture "GES-2" continues a series of special shows in the framework of the program "Metamorphoses: transformations, resurrections and magical cinema". These are eight very different films, defined by the curator of the program Denis Ruzaev as a movie "full of changes - and films about changes". IK talked to Denis not only about metamorphoses and the past, but also about the present: how to feel and understand modernity. Or at least survive it. - Denis, what is a movie in "GES-2"? What is its logic? Is it a vessel that communicates with other activities of the Cultural Center? Independent voice? A reaction to the space in which it is displayed? To the public that comes here? For the time we live in? — It seems that there is a high risk of going into some general words — especially since it would be presumptuous of me to speak on behalf of the institution. The logic, perhaps, is to create a space for reflection-both on our part and on the part of the viewer — on those themes, plots and figures that could help us better understand modernity. Or to feel it more precisely and deeply. Or at least survive it.
