Russian Resurrection Film Festival Insider Session of SUNSTROKE – includes cocktails and blini celebration!
Sunstroke takes place in1920, with Imperial Russia is on the verge of collapse. The last soldiers loyal to the Tsar are held in a prison camp awaiting Moscow’s decision regarding their fate… The Lieutenant recalls his encounter, years earlier, with a beautiful, enigmatic woman. During the course of a steamboat voyage their paths crossed briefly. The Woman was married and The Lieutenant was engaged, but their mutual attraction was overpowering. Their ‘sunstroke’, (as they called it), led them into a night of passion: a single night of such sensual intensity that The Lieutenant remembers it to this day, even now clinging to this memory of an opulent Russia and a better life… Academy Award® winning director Nikita Mikhalkov delivers an epic saga, skillfully moving from laughter to tears, from lightness to intense drama, told through a cavalcade of colourful and touching characters, painting a dreamlike and magnificent portrait of Russia during its glory days.
