Destination Nizhny Novgorod

Destination Nizhny Novgorod. Our exhibition The Fatal Look, curated by Kai Vase, is on display at Cinema Orlyonok there.

"Last night I was in the kingdom of shadows. If you only knew how strange it is to be there", wrote Maxim Gorky in Nizhegorodsky listok (4 July 1896) after having seen the first Lumière Brothers film show at the huge Nizhny Novgorod trade fair in 1896. During the same tour, the Lumière show came to Helsinki.

"Вчера вечером я был в царстве теней, Если бы вы знали, как это странно, чтобы быть там."
