Human Voice

When: December 15

Where: CDK

A short film by Pedro Almodovar based on the play of the same name by Jean Cocteau. The main character, played by Tilda Swinton, froze in anticipation of her lover, who left her, but never returned to pick up her things and her faithful dog. Her loneliness interrupts his long-awaited call. Cocteau's play was filmed more than once: before Swinton, Anna Magnani and Ingrid Bergman played the main role - however, unlike them, the heroine of Almodovar is experiencing parting as a real woman of the new century.

Where: YouTube

Alexander Tsypkin became seriously interested in the world of cinematography: the premiere of his new show #TsypKino took place on the YouTube channel of the writer and screenwriter, in which Russian directors present their short films. Ilya Tilkin became the hero of the first issue. For his film The Star, he wrote not only the script, but also the music. In an interview that followed the premiere, Alexander talked with Ilya about whether talent can always break through and whether it is right for a little-known actor to refuse roles that are not aesthetically close to him. The film and interviews will remain in the public domain.
