Bread Day

In this exceptional first documentary by award-winning filmmaker Sergei Dvortsevoy (Tulpan), life is both ugly and beautiful, as individuals try to eke out their existence in a Russia in transition. Once a week, on ‘bread day’, a group of elderly people inhabiting a hamlet north of St. Petersburg get a bread delivery at a nearby train station. Braving the harsh weather conditions and the derelict state of the rails, the people push an uncoupled train carriage themselves to town.

Preceded by an introduction by filmmaker Vivian Ostrovsky

This screening is part of the Great Exhibition Road Festival and echoes the Food: Bigger than the Plate exhibition at the V&A.
