Imagine Harold Lloyd starring in Terry Gilliam’s BRAZIL and you’ll start to get an idea of what MY GRANDMOTHER is like. –  Forgotten for a half-century, Kote Mikaberidze‘s MY GRANDMOTHER is a delightful example of the Soviet Eccentric Cinema movement as well as an irreverent satire of the then still-young Soviet State system. Noted for its anarchic styles — which include stop-motion, puppetry, exaggerated camera angles, animation and constructivist Reso Kiknadzesets — the film unspools the foibles and follies that abound when a Georgian paper pusher, modelled after American silent comic Harold Lloyd, loses his job. 

This will be the UK premiere of the score specially composed by Reso Kiknadze (pictured right) performed live by the Reso Kiknadze Trio.
