Russian About
No Sunscapades news to report, but our paddle-dependent lad Klementhro is still making desperate, needy bids for attention before he gets shunted aside. Over the next few weeks the film will be part of a touring programme spun off from last year's edition of Russia's Big Cartoon Festival for which it was officially selected. Traveling outside of Moscow this time, Klementhro - or Климентро, or Climentro, as I guess the word I made up translates to - will screen alongside a couple of personal favourites such as Love (Réka Bucsi) and Negative Space (Tiny Inventions) this Saturday, March 3rd, 8:40pm at the Spartak cinema in Voronezh.
Later in the month the programme will take place in Krasnoyarsk at the House of Cinema on March 23rd, 9pm and Nizhny Novgorod at the National Centre for Contemporary Arts on March 30th, 4pm. Head on over to the festival's official site and Facebook page for more specific event info. Other screenings that will be featured in the tour also include tremendous recent work by Niki Lindroth Von Bahr (The Burden), Britt Raes (Catherine), Nicolas Ménard (Wednesday With Goddard), Sean Buckelew (Lovestreams), Chintis Lundgren (Life with Herman H. Rott), Diane Obomsawin (I Like Girls), Anna Ginsburg (Material World),  as well as some modern classics from Kirsten Lepore (Bottle) and Tim Reckart (Head Over Heels). So if you're in the area be sure to check it out, 'cause if you miss out on a line-up like that then, frankly, you don't deserve nice things.
Not to be aggressive about it.
