World Cinema – FeatureUS PremiereTHE GEOGRAPHER DRANK HIS GLOBE AWAY (Geograf Globus Propil), Alexandr VeledinskyRussia / 2012 / 120 min / DCP / Russian w/English sub-titlesYoung biologist Viktor Sluzhkin, suffering from lack of money, becomes a teacher of geography in a secondary school in the city of Perm’. At first he has to fight with pupils but he soon becomes their friend, taking them rafting. He quarrels with the Deputy Principal, drinks wine with his friends, tries to get on with his wife and takes his young daughter to the kindergarten. It is just a life… but Aleksey Ivanov wrote this ordinary private story with such recklessness, such tenderness, such acuteness that The Geographer Drank His Globe Away became, as it is often the case with good books, a story about everyone. It is a story about everyone who lost his way in life, about everyone who sometimes felt himself as desperately lonely as Viktor Sluzhkin, about everyone who, despite his solitude and depression, never lost the capacity to feel and to love.The Geographer Drank His Globe Away is a Russian drama film made in 2013, directed by Alexander Veledinsky, based on the novel of the same name by Alexei Ivanov. The action of the film, as opposed to the novel, has been transferred from the "dashing nineties" to the present day. The film participated in the XXIV Open Russian Film Festival "Kinotavr" in Sochi and was awarded the main prize. It will be released in Russia during the autumn of 2013.Writer: Alexandr Veledinsky, Rauf Kubaev, Valeriy Todorovskiy (2008 "Hipsters"), Aleksey Ivanov (Novel) / Producer: Vadim Goryainov (Red Arrow Film Company), Valeriy Todorovskiy (Red Arrow Film Company), Leonid Lebedev (Red Arrow Film Company) / Cast : Konstantin Khabenskiy ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" By Tomas Alfredson, "Wanted" By Timur Bekmambetov,"Day Watch, Elena Lyadova ("Elena" By Andrey Zvyagintsev; "Tambourine, Drum" By Aleksei Mizgiryov; "Dreaming Of Space", Aleksandr Robak, Anna Ukolova, Evgenia Brik, Agrippina Steklova ("Koktebel" By Boris Khlebnikov, Aleksey Popogrebskiy, "Once Upon A Time There Was A Woman", Anfisa Chernykh, Anna Sinyakona, Andrey Prytkov, Ilya Ilyinykh, Artyom Orlov, Viktor Uzun / Contact: email@example.com - Elena Podolskaya, ANT!PODE Sales & DistributionTHE DIRECTOR: Alexander Veledinsky is a writer and director working in Film and Television.
