Tuesday 9 April: The Death of Stalin
The Death of Stalin was banned in Russia last year, shortly after its release there. This is a black comedy about backstairs Kremlin intrigue following the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953 – adapted by Armando Iannucci from the French graphic novel series.
Faced with the unthinkable demise of Stalin, so long revered as nothing less than a god, these Soviet dignitaries panic, plot and go in and out of denial: a bizarre, dysfunctional hokey cokey of the mind. Everyone is initially terrified of saying out loud that he is dead – a quasi-regicidal act, which could in any case turn out to be wrong and interpreted as traitorous wishful thinking.
- Running time: 1 hour 45 minutes
