Don't be like these guys! 

Get some hair of the dog that bit you, and add some culture at the same time at the 2019/20 season of HIGHBROW HANGOVER.

Stage Russia is an intercultural project that films performances presented by the finest theater companies in Russia and distributes them in HD, translated and subtitled, into cinemas, arts centers and universities across the globe. 

With the help of its distribution arm, The Art Seen, they've recently added independent and original feature films into our mix, allowing us to present works of art that would otherwise be unavailable to a worldwide audience.

The core of their goals is to share the beauty and universality of Russian and Eastern European culture.

Brunch can be brought in from any number of delightful restaurants in our neighborhood.

CHILDREN OF THE SUN

Written during the abortive Russian Revolution of 1905, Maxim Gorky's brilliant darkly comic "Children of the Sun" depicts the new middle-class, foolish perhaps but likeable, as they flounder, philosophize, and yearn for meaning, all while being totally blind to their impending annihilation. Multi-award-winning director Timofey Kulyabin's (Three Sisters, Onegin) modernized production, set in 1999 at Stanford University, focuses on the interplay between the characters, the relationships formed and broken, sparring over culture and the cosmos, barely sensing that their own privileged world is in jeopardy. Directed for the screen by Kulyabin and filmed from his Red Torch Theatre in Novosibirsk, Russia.
