Short Encounters starring
Vladimir Vysotsky Kira Muratova
Kira Muratova 's third film, a lyrical love story, was shelved for

(who can be seen in tonight's Film Club in her latest film) and of Vladimir Vysotsky , the protest singer whose tragically early death left a nation in mourning.

David Robinson introduces the last in a short season of controversial Soviet films.
Sign of Disaster starring
Nina Ruslanova Gennady Garbuk
For Stepanida and her husband, being occupied by German troops is only the last of a series of battles.
The brutality of forced collectivisation, and the cynical collaboration of local fascists have already strengthened Stepanida's dogged determination to stand up for herself. Based on a recently published, best-selling novel, Sign of Disaster presents a radical reassessment of a little-known period of modern history and can be regarded as a milestone in Soviet cinema.
