Natalija Majsova on Soviet and American Sci-Fi Cinema of the 1950s and 1960s

This lecture is part of Search for a new New World. The more frustrated you are on earth, the more you hope for in space. Moving beyond the terrestrial focus of the exhibition Building a new New World, four case studies from before the revolution to the space race look to Russian sci-fi to probe individual hopes and ideas about new societal organization. Inherently experimental, sci-fi stories and films could reflect on what was and wasn’t possible in Russian reality and think beyond it.

We will host a live Q&A on Instagram the next day, Wednesday, 27 May, at 2:00pm Montréal time (8:00pm Central European Time). Questions for the Q&A may be submitted to [email protected] or left as comments on YouTube.
