Beanpole

Available until Friday, May 22, 2020

Kino Marquee is a new initiative that creates "virtual cinemas" for temporarily closed independent theaters. Buy a virtual “ticket” to watch this film and you’ll be directly supporting the film society, as all revenue is being shared between distributor and Yukon Film Society, just as if you bought your ticket at the box office!

You can watch Beanpole from May 8th - May 21st!
 

About the Film- Available Light Cinema at Home

In post-WWII Leningrad, two women, Iya and Masha (astonishing newcomers Viktoria Miroshnichenko and Vasilisa Perelygina), intensely bonded after fighting side by side as anti-aircraft gunners, attempt to readjust to a haunted world. As the film begins, Iya, long and slender and towering over everyone—hence the film’s title—works as a nurse in a shell-shocked hospital, presiding over traumatized soldiers. A shocking accident brings them closer and also seals their fates. The 28-year-old Russian director Kantemir Balagov won Un Certain Regard’s Best Director prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival for this richly burnished, occasionally harrowing rendering of the persistent scars of war.
