Based on one of Chekhov's loveliest, most wistful stories, this tale of a holiday affair begins as Moscow banker Dmitry Gurov (the wonderful Alexei Batalov) spies a beautiful young woman, Anna, (Iya Sawina), walking her dog in early 1900s Yalta. Each it turns out is caught in a problematic marriage, yet each is reluctant to embark on an adventure that could turn their carefully controlled worlds upside down. After their summer holidays, both return home, but then a chance appears for Dmitry to make a trip to Anna's home town. Was what they experienced a passing fancy-or a chance for more fulfilled lives? Khefitz creates a rich period portrait as well as a brilliant study of passion deferred, making his star-crossed couple complex, vital characters as well as representatives of their particular era.

The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.

It was a quiet night in the dessert. Even the mice weren’t around. A few LEDs blinked in the dark, and the sound of a fan filled the infinite void. The conversation cutting the silence seemed to go nowhere.
