The Projection Booth watches Zerograd

Our friends at the Projection Booth watch Karen Shakhnazarov’s Zerograd (1986). “The film stars Leonid Filatov as Aleksei Varakin, he’s from a Moscow Mechanical Plant and comes to a small town to meet with a man about air conditioners. He soon finds himself in an absurdist nightmare where he’s served a cake that looks like his own head by a chef who is not his father and commits suicide. Samm Deighan and Alistair Pitts join Mike to talk about the film while director Karen Shakhnazarov provides more context to the making of the movie.”

Listen here. The Gutter’s own Carol wrote a bit about Zerograd here.
