Things to do in Miami: Screening of “What Can Be Broken Should Be Broken” June 25, 2022
After completing her first short film, What can be broken should be brokenlast year, Rostislav Vaynshtok was delighted to be welcomed onto the film festival circuit, where he performed at 15 festivals in eight different countries and won two awards along the way.
For Vaynshtok, the moment was bittersweet, as he couldn’t be there to see how audiences reacted to his crime film featuring organ-harvesting gangsters out for revenge.
“Since last year we were still in the middle of COVID, I missed most of the festivals, especially since some were in other countries,” Vaynshtok said. new times.
Hoping to remedy the situation, Vaynshtok set up a free screening of the short on June 25 at Tomas Redrado Art with all sorts of festivities including music, art and an open bar.
“We are going to project the film digitally in 4K on one of the walls of the gallery. Kronenbourg kindly provides 1664 Blanc”, he adds.
Besides the free beer, Vaynshtok, a musician who performs under the name Slavvy, reached out to friends to provide the sounds needed to make the evening a party.
“Bed Scene are a great local band with the best vibes going to play. John Caignet of Jolt Radio is a dear friend and has supported me and my musical endeavors since my high school band Fight Like Animals,” he says. “He’s had his finger on the pulse of the Miami music scene for over a decade – he’s the man.”
Local artist John Barrymore will provide the art for the evening. Barrymore and Vaynshtok have been friends since childhood, so Barrymore considered their past and present friendship for the performance art he would present at the event.
“The fundraiser for Lauren Lauren is an auction that will run for the duration of the opening. We want to raise awareness for Lauren Lauren and make Lauren Lauren™ a thing. Polaroids $20 is a painting that charges customers 10 $ for selfies and $20 for Polaroids,” says Barrymore.
The couple chose Tomas Redrado Art in Little River as the site for the event after Barrymore dragged Vaynshtok to a few art openings in space.
“We had been to exhibitions at Tomas Redrado Art, and we really connected with Tomas and some of the artists he represents. The idea of doing an exhibition came naturally after seeing the program. [at the gallery]“, explains Vaynshtok.
This will be the first film screened at Tomas Redrado Art, but the eponymous gallerist is grateful for the opportunity to push the boundaries of what his space can be.
“We don’t see our gallery as another art gallery dedicated to contemporary visual art, but as the true center of a movement where artists collaborate,” says Redrado. “This will be the first time we’ve featured a film in our catalog, and I’m thrilled to bring another medium of art and expression to the gallery.”
And for Vaynshtok, it’s an opportunity to witness a live audience in his half-English, half-Russian detective opus.
