November 9, 7 p.m. FAUST (2011) 134 min.

Sokurov continues his examination of power started in Moloch and Taurus. With constantly moving camerawork, a richly textured soundscape, and a meticulously composed mise-en-scene, the film creates a vision of Goethe’s poetic drama unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Introduced by Kirk Wetters, Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, Yale University;

Maryana Kalmykova is a student of Aleksandr Sokurov’s Workshop at the Kabardino-Balkarian State University in Nalchik.
