Movie screenings

Almost any film can now be watched on-line or downloaded from the web. But going to the cinema provides us quite a different experience, and it can become truly fascinating when in addition to watching a film we have a chance to meet the film director – the person who can answer any questions about the film better than anyone else would. Besides, modern art films are very rarely shown in Russia outside the largest cities, though people express great interest to art cinema.
Museum-estate "Yasnaya Polyana" in collaboration with the "Prosvetitel" award holds a number of scientific lectures. Every month in Yasnaya Polyana the award winners and finalists of the "Prosvetitel" award come out with scientific lectures and lectures on liberal arts. The aim of this project is to bring back the interest to such form of knowledge acquiring as scientific lecture as well as to draw attention to non-fiction books.
