SyrFilmFest presents SyrFilmFest’11 Best of Fest
The SYRFILM organization that brings year-round programming to Central New York, in collaboration with Art Rage Gallery will present a five-part series showcasing films from the 8th Annual Syracuse International Film Festival. The series continues on Jan. 21 with a screening of “Siberia Monamour” by Slava Ross, (Russia) 95min., a SYRFILMFEST ’11 Judge’s Citation Winner. Additional screenings will take place in February, March and April.
“Siberia Monamour” is a powerful, beautifully-shot and -acted work about life and death on the fringes of Russian society. In a deserted Siberian village, an old man and his grandson wait for the boy’s father, missing for two years, to return. A pack of feral dogs also waits just outside the village, devouring everything alive. One of these dogs is the boy’s best friend. The others keep the boy and his grandfather isolated in the wilderness, far from the nearest village. Through this dangerous, yet beautiful landscape wander a host of soldiers, marauders, prostitutes and drunks. They are all searching for an escape.
All screenings take place at 8 p.m. at Art Rage Gallery located at 505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse. Tickets for each event are $5 at the door; doors open at 7:30 p.m.
This event is recommended for adults only. For more information visit http://syrfilm.com OR http://artragegallery.org.
