Please join us for the screening of Youth (2022) and a Zoom Q&A discussion with the film director Dmitrii Davydov. Hailing from the Sakha Republic, Davydov is the director of the prize-winning drama Scarecrow (2020) which popularized Yakut cinema both in the festival circuit and the regional box-office. Premiering in January 2023, Youth is Davydov’s latest film, a witty and refreshing musical comedy set in a small town in Yakutia. Puting the denizens of the periphery in the spotlight, Youth tells a story of a home-coming with warmth and good-humor.  Youth is the second movie of the Spring 2023 Harriman Film Series Peripheral Vision, which explores the anti-imperial gaze in contemporary Russian cinema. Screening and discussion moderated by Mark Lipovetsky and Tatiana Efremova.
