February 13th
 Iakov Protazanov's Aelita
(1924)

"ANTA... ODELI... UTA -- What do they mean? You will find out on 30 September at the Ars Cinema." This was how Pravda advertised the premier of Iakov Protozanov's Aelita in 1924. One of the highest budgeted pictures of its time, the film tells an interplanetary love story against the political backdrop of the NEP-era Soviet Union and a concurrent proletarian uprising... on Mars! Famous for its elaborate costumes and set pieces, designed by the Constructivist artist Aleksandra Ekster, the film has been visually compared to such German expressionist classics as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919) and is loosely based upon Aleksei Tolstoi's 1922 novel of the same name.
