Event description: 

For Marx… (За Маркса …; directed by Svetlana Baskova, 2014, 100 min.)

The New Left announces its presence forcefully in this darkly comical and violent tale of class struggle in post-Soviet Russia. What was old is new again: Malevich’s Black Square and clandestine labor union meetings mix with meta-commentary on French New Wave and Hollywood.
