Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jun 10th at 9:00pm for Day Watch (Dnevnoy dozor) at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Schmitty wearing a masterful micro-fro and a pair of glasses in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
A man (Khabensky) who serves in the war between the forces of Light and Dark comes into possession of a device that can restore life to Moscow, which was nearly destroyed by an apocalyptic event.
Featuring the cinematic vision of cutting-edge Director/Writer Timur Bekmambetov, “Day Watch (Dnevnoi Dozor)” is the second installment of a trilogy based on the best-selling sci-fi novels of Sergei Lukyanenko entitled “Night Watch,” “Day Watch” and “Dusk Watch.” A dazzling mix of state-of-the-art visual effects, amazing action sequences, and nail-biting horror, when “Night Watch (Nochnoi Dozor)” was released in its native Russia in July 2004, it became an instant smash hit breaking all film gross records in post-Soviet history. Set in contemporary Moscow, “Day Watch (Dnevnoi Dozor)” revolves around the conflict and balance maintained between the forces of light and darkness — the result of a medieval truce between the opposing sides.
