Exclusive Interview with Director Victor Ginzburg for ‘Generation P’

17 November 2012 10:16 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s going back to the U.S.S.R. Or more like going back to the aftermath of the U.S.S.R.

Generation P” introduces the audiences with a wild, trippy movie of Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union. As Russia starts to adopt capitalism, the film explores certain themes of advertising, mafia groups and even the country’s politics.

The film revolves around a young writer, Babylen Tatarsky, who was recruiting into the advertising industry. His journey started off innocently trying to promote certain brands in Russia, but it later took Babylen deeper into a mysterious corrupt advertising industry as he looked for inspiration through Mesopotamian mythology and drugs.

The movie is based off the fiction novel written by Victor Pelevin.

Television commercial director Victor Ginzburg made his feature film directorial debut with “Generation P.” The movie made its premiere in Russia last April and »

10 Reviews of New Releases, From 'Anna Karenina' To 'Silver Linings'

15 November 2012 7:05 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekly column is intended to provide reviews of nearly every new release, including films on VOD (and in certain cases some studio releases). Specifics release dates and locations follow each review. Reviews This Week "Anna Karenina" "Funeral Kings" "Generation P" "Hitler's Children" "The King" "First Winter" "Mea Maxima Culpa" "Price Check" "La Rafle" "Silver Linings Playbook" *** "Anna Karenina" With somber-eyed Keira Knightley in the titular role, one might expect the usual from "Anna Karenina": A mopey period piece with little to offer beyond the expected turmoil of Leo Tolstoy's classic. That superficial assumption ignores director Joe Wright's capacity as a visual stylist to inject the material with a greater amount of energy -- both »

Commercials as Content? 'Generation P' to Get a U.S. Release

21 May 2012 4:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

New World Distribution is partnering with digital advertising firm Winnol to release Victor Ginzburg’s “Generation P” in U.S. theaters and on VOD September 12. “Generation P,” which has screened at the Toronto Film Festival and at New Directors/New Films, is based on the novel by Victor Pelevin and looks at the rise of gangsterism and advertising in post-Soviet Russia. The rookie U.S. indie distributor plans to host a special director’s-cut screening of the Russian-American co-production that includes a video toast from the Moscow-based filmmakers, along with a release on 1,500 screens. “Their use of internationally known brands as part of the movie is genius,” said Winnol director of content and licensing Grant Kahn. “It is our goal to make the commercials shown in the movie part of a viral campaign that makes people embrace commercials as content.” Nwd also acquired rights to the film in India. »

First, indieWIRE's Eric Kohn hosted a "Meet the New Directors" panel at the Film Society of Lincoln Center earlier this week and you can watch it here. It runs 63'12" and the guests are Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin (Now, Forager); Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi (5 Broken Cameras); Adam Leon (Gimme the Loot); Kleber Mendonça Filho (Neighboring Sounds); Terence Nance (An Oversimplification of Her Beauty); Joann Sfar (The Rabbi's Cat); Joachim Trier (Oslo, August 31st); and Clarissa Knoll (Street Vendor Cinema).

And the Fslc has posted separate Q&A sessions with Leon (Gimme), Pablo Giorgelli (Las Acacias) and Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption), all on one page.

Meantime, we've entered the home stretch. New Directors/New Films rolls on through the weekend and closes on Sunday night with a surprise — whatever it may be, it'll probably rank a roundup of its own. That aside, here's where we wrap it up. »

Nd/Nf 2012. Lineup: Notes + Trailers

26 February 2012 12:53 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art have announced that they'll be presenting 29 features and 12 shorts in the 41st edition of New Directors/New Films, running March 21 through April 1). The series, dedicated to "the discovery of new works by emerging and dynamic filmmaking talent," opens with Nadine Labaki's Where Do We Go Now? (see the Cannes roundup). A few notes on the other features:

The Ambassador (Mads Brügger). The La Weekly's Karina Longworth suggests that Brügger is "sort of the Vice magazine version of Sacha Baron Cohen, as financed by Lars von Trier. His last film was The Red Chapel, an exercise in hidden camera comedy with unusual socio-political stakes, which I put on my top 10 list for 2010." In "his hilarious, troubling new film," Brügger poses as "a diplomat in Africa, a decadent Westerner plundering a third-world nation…. For a six-figure outlay, Brugger is promised a Liberian passport, »

Santa Barbara Film Festival Diary: Hanging With ‘Generation P,’ Digging ‘The Hell Hole’ and ‘Up There’

30 January 2012 7:48 PM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

My former hometown of seven years, Santa Barbara welcomed me back with open arms — and by open arms I mean aggressive festival volunteers, and a short but unpleasant bout of food poisoning. I still love you regardless, State Street. Between bouts of trying not to hork in public, I managed to swing some wildly different screenings that left me more fulfilled than not with my time at this year’s festival to this point. I squeaked into the Metro Theater II just in time to catch one of the more mystifying but engaging films at the festival, Victor Ginzburg’s Generation P, an adaptation of Russian novelist Victor Pelevin’s book of the same name.  I was born in 1980 — so while I do have some reference points for that decade, I’m considered a child of the 90s. I have vague recollections of the waning years of the Cold War, never »
