Revolution - New Art for a New World

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Margy Kinmonth, Revolution – New Art for a New World is a bold and exciting feature documentary that encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian Avant-Garde.

Revolution – New Art for a New World was filmed entirely on location in Moscow, St. Petersburg and London, with access to The State Tretyakov Gallery, The State Russian Museum, The State Hermitage Museum and in co-operation with The Royal Academy of Arts, London. The film features paintings previously banned and unseen for decades, and masterpieces, which rarely leave Russia. Contributors include Museum Directors Professor Mikhail Piotrovsky and Zelfira Tregulova and film director Andrei Konchalovsky. The film also features Matthew Macfadyen, Tom Hollander, James Fleet, Eleanor Tomlinson and Daisy Bevan.

Revolution – New Art for a New World will be distributed by Arts Alliance’s sister company, Park Circus with theatrical activity slated for late Autumn 2016, ahead of the 2017 centenary anniversary of the Russian Revolution.

Ripper Street S4: Interview with Matthew Macfadyen (Sydney Morning Herald)

Series 4 of Ripper Street will begin airing this Thursday in Australia.  Matthew Macfadyen made several comments about his role in Ripper Street.  Here is a small excerpt:

As for his character, Macfadyen says he is happy  to follow the scripts, which often arrive the night before filming: "I have great faith in the writing of [creator] Richard Warlow. It's refreshing and exciting because you don't know where you are going. The more twists and turns on  Edmund's journey the better for me.

"I do like Edmund, his failings as well as his strong points. He is quite a proud and vain man who can be spectacularly thoughtless about people close to him. But he is also, at heart, a good man who cares very deeply about people who can't help themselves or who are hard done by. After all, people are capable of revolting things but that doesn't necessarily mean they are evil. It might simply be circumstances."
