We would like to invite you to be part of FilmEU’s International Cineclub organized by the partner universities of the European University FilmEU.
Cineclub is a recurring film (film – animation film) evening for students. In addition to watching films, they also get the chance to talk to guest speakers (directors, ...). The films will be linked to the host country and will be selected based on a predetermined theme.
Four film nights will be organized throughout the academic year. Each partner in turn, organizes a night where students are invited in person on their home universities. You can find a detailled programme below.
All students from LUCA School of Arts are welcome to participate, especially our film and animation film students. See you there!
Tallinn University, Baltic Film, Media and Arts School organizes the next Cineclub, it takes place on Wednesday the 16th of March.
All LUCA students are welcome to watch the livestream at campus C-Mine in Genk.
Goodbye Soviet Union is a first feature of director Lauri Randla, based loosely on his childhood. The film came out to the cinemas during the darkest times for Covid cinema-closures, in 2020, but managed to become the most seen Estonian film in Finnish cinemas. It then went on to win multiple awards and A-list festival nominations, including Camerimage Golden Frog nomination, Tallinn Black Nights Festival Audience Award and many other.
The screening will be followed by Q&A with Elen Lotman, the cinematographer of Goodbye Soviet Union.
Johannes is born into an Ingrian-Finnish family in the Estonian Soviet Republic. When his mother leaves for Finland, and he's left to be raised by his grandparents, Johannes is forced to face life on his own. He falls deeply in love with his classmate Vera, takes risks, gets into fights, and gets punished. All the while, in the background, the Evil Empire collapses. As the Lenins fall and the Barbie dolls take over, the crocodile Genas and the Moskvitches are forced to step aside, leaving the road to the West wide open. Lauri Randla's Goodbye, Soviet Union is a comedy about the adventures of the eccentric Tarkkinen family in the last days of the Soviet Union.
