Event Details

Film Screening: The Asthenic Syndrome | October 10 | 7 – 9 pm

The first screening in the REEES Fall 2018 film series, “The Long Farewell: The Films of Kira Muratova.” Free and open to the public.

Strange, shocking, and profoundly affecting, this 1990 Soviet masterpiece begins as a black-and- white melodrama about a newly widowed woman and becomes the story of a narcoleptic schoolteacher, a blackly comic portrayal of late Soviet society, and an avant-garde indictment of humanity. The Asthenic Syndrome remains a relevant and fascinating meditation on grief, cruelty, and the relationship between art and life.

Introduction by Matt McWilliams, Slavic Languages and Literatures, Yale University.

Sponsored by The Russian, East European and Eurasian Program, European Studies Council, MacMillan Center, Edward J. and Dorothy Clarke Kempf Memorial Fund, Slavic Languages and Literatures, and Films at the Whitney.


The Yale Film Study Center is pleased to present Treasures from the Yale Film Archive, a series of classic and contemporary films from around the world shown in their original 35mm format as they were meant to be seen. These screenings are always free and open to the public.
