Open Roof Festival: The Death of Stalin with RubeHill
On July 25 we screen The Death of Stalin – the latest from VEEP and In The Loop writer and director Armando Iannucci – along with a performance from RubēHill, Ontario-born artist Alex Stavropoulos-Laurie’s LCD Soundsystem-inspired musical project.
Recounting the last days of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, The Death of Stalin finds comedic gold in the chaos, anarchy and outwardly zany hijinks of Stalin’s political party and hilariously inept potential successors.
Starring Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Michael Palin, Jason Isaacs, Rupert Friend, Paddy Considine and Andrea Riseborough, The Death of Stalin is a timely political satire, and accordingly "is by turns entertaining and unsettling, with laughs that morph into gasps and uneasy gasps that erupt into queasy, choking laughs.” (Manhola Dargis, The New York Times)
