The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on our venues and events. The safety of our guests, staff, and artists is of paramount importance, and following Governor Wolf's order to prohibit the operation of all businesses that are not life-sustaining, all Pittsburgh Cultural Trust performances, exhibitions, films, and events through May 10 have been suspended.

As a result, Beanpole has been cancelled. Ticket buyers were contacted by email on March 18, 2020. If we have not connected with you, please Contact Us.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we process a large number of requests.

In post-WWII Leningrad, two women, Iya and Masha (astonishing newcomers Viktoria Miroshnichenko and Vasilisa Perelygina), intensely bonded after fighting side by side as anti-aircraft gunners, attempt to readjust to a haunted world. As the film begins, Iya, long and slender and towering over everyone — hence the film’s title — works as a nurse in a shell-shocked hospital, presiding over traumatized soldiers. A shocking accident brings them closer and also seals their fates. The 28-year-old Russian director Kantemir Balagov won Un Certain Regard’s Best Director prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival for this richly burnished, occasionally harrowing rendering of the persistent scars of war.
