Fragment of an Empire (SU, 1929)
Friedrich Ermler 110′
Fragment of an Empire is a key film in the Russian cinema history. In the film, the soldier Filimonov has lost his memory caused by a shellshock during the First World War. Ten years later he ‘awakens’ in the Sovjet Union that has changed beyond recognition.
The film has been recently restaured. During the restauration scenes that were considered lost have been added, so that the film can be seen in is entirity again since decades.
Russian composer Vladimir Deshovov composed a wonderful and original score for the film, a score that hasn’t been performed since 1929!
During the festival the film will be accompanied with the original score, reconstructed and performed by Daan van den Hurk (piano).
