CineSpin: My Grandmother
(Moya babushka / Chemi bebia)
Aleksandre Takaishvili, Elena Chernova, Evgenii Obanov, Akakii Khorava,
Join the BAMPFA Student Committee for our exciting annual film and live music event CineSpin. Gogol meets Chaplin in Kote Mikaberidze’s riotous, scathingly antibureaucratic satire. One of the eccentric high points of Soviet silent cinema, My Grandmother is filled with expressionist decor, skewed camera angles, and even puppetry and animation. The Berkeley-based jazz duo Gabe and Miles perform a live, original score for the astonishing film. Their music explores the intersection of improvisation and composition, finding balance between jazz, folk, electronic, and indie sounds. You will not want to miss their stunning performance or this incredible film.
