State Funeral

2019 / 135min / DCP

DIRECTOR: SERGEI LOZNITSA

CAST: JOSEPH STALIN

“Sergei’s new movie is about the funeral of Stalin, a bizarre event in Russian history, where you had essentially a traumatized nation, after years and years of purges, having a kind of Stockholm syndrome funeral that went on for days and days and days, where people lined up and cried and did all sorts of insane things. It’s a really interesting thing to examine: the death of the personality cult… or the final perpetuation of it on a mass scale.”—Kon Trubkovich
