About Anton Borisovich 

One of the most eccentric personalities on the Moscow music scene, Anton Borisovich is a performer, DJ and collector of antique records, gramophones and clothes. A unique phenomenon his gramophone DJ-sets have taken Moscow by storm and he regularly tours around the country as well as abroad, performing in the Russian Pavilion at Cannes film festival in 2016. A one-of-a-kind experience, his gramophone DJ-sets feature antique records reanimating the sounds of an era long gone, creating a unique vintage ambiance. 

 

 About the film

A Slave of Love (Nikita Mikhalkov, 1976) is a cinematic love letter to the long-gone era of the pre-Revolutionary Russian cinema. Set during the Autumn of 1918, the film in a self-reflexive manner focuses on a film production crew who are attempting to escape the Civil War as well as the realities of the changing world. A silent movie star, Olga, is at the heart of the drama with her self-centred oblivious ways; she gradually becomes aware of the Revolutionary realities as her love interest, the dashing camera man, Pototski, turns out to be on the side of the Bolsheviks. A story of sensual and political awakening, A Slave of Love is imbued with elegiac imagery and soundtrack, at once celebrating the beauty of silent cinema and testifying to the accomplishments of the Soviet cinema of the 1970s.
