On March 29, the Russian House Cinema Club in Brussels hosted a screening dedicated to the 215th anniversary of the birth of the great Russian writer Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol. The Belgian audience watched the “only Soviet horror film” – “Viy”, based on the writer’s story of the same name.

The film, made in 1967 by Konstantin Yershov and Georgi Kropachyov with the participation of the famous director and storyteller Alexander Ptushko, was appreciated by the audience. They were particularly impressed by the skill of the makeup artists and decorators who created mythical characters without the use of any special effects or computer graphics.

The Russian House Cinema Club awaits its audience. Come, it will be interesting!
