JULY RAIN d. Marlen Khutsiev, 1967 + Intro by Professor Ian Christie (03 MAR 18:00) / Part of OTHER MODERNISMS, OTHER FUTURES: GLOBAL ART CINEMA 1960-80 at Barbican.

“This luminously beautiful, gently melancholic film follows 20-something student Lena through an existential crisis. It catches her at a pivotal point in her life, with the weight of several important decisions on her shoulders: whether to continue her post-grad studies and marry her long-time boyfriend. At a difficult time, she takes comfort in the solitude of her flat, and in intimate telephone chats with a stranger who once showed her kindness in a rainstorm.”
