Summercamp Festival: Turksib with Live Soundtrack
Screening as part of our collaboration with the unique Summercamp Festival which is set to take over Camp and Furnace this Bank Holiday weekend.
An epic spectacle that lyrically and intensely depicts Stalinist Russia’s improbable efforts to build a railway through one of the most inhospitable deserts in the world. The film, originally released in 1920, was brought to Western audience in 2011 as part of a release by the British Film Institute, along with a newly commissioned soundtrack by Guy Bartnell. Described by The Wire as “one of electronica’s staunchest and most singular footsoldiers”, Bartnell will perform his commission live at Summercamp under his project’s moniker Bronnt Industries Kapital.
The screening will take place at Camp and Furnace, tickets for the festival include admission to the screening and are available from the festival website.
