Based on the novel The Petrovs In and Around the Flu by Alexey Salnikov, Kirill Serebrennikov’s film is a deadpan, hallucinatory romp through post-Soviet Russia. With the city in the throes of a flu epidemic, the Petrov family struggles through yet another day in a country where the past is never past, the present is a booze-fueled, icy fever dream of violence and tenderness, and where – beneath layers of the ordinary – things turn out to be quite extraordinary.

From 11 Feb
 


Sovereign Film Distribution has partnered with Matchbox Cine to curate and produce a panel discussion on Kirill Serebrennikov’s latest feature Petrov’s Flu, for which Matchbox Cine produced descriptive subtitles for Deaf and hard of hearing audiences. Hosted by Charlotte Little, in conversation with Sean Welsh, William Mager and Ted Evans. BSL interpretation provided by Hannah Wilson, Singalise Co-op.
