Deceptively simple, yet devastatingly powerful. Still As Your Sleeping (Oct 21) is threaded through with images of stillness and flux, leaving and returning, and pivots of change and includes the timeless and poignant The Parting Glass as requested by Margaret Atwood for her specially curated BBC Radio 4 Today programme.

However, when she boards the long-distance train to take her there, she finds that she has to share her carriage with the boorish and belligerent Ljoha (Yuriy Borisov), a foul-mouthed, misogynistic drunk travelling to his new job as a miner. Initially, they seem to have nothing in common, but, like the landscape, they're travelling through, the more time Laura spends with Ljoha the more he thaws, revealing an unforeseen kindness beneath the macho facade. This chance meeting between the two occupants of compartment no. 6 brings about an awakening within them, forming a bond they will never forget.

But in the 1950s, groups of citizens at grass roots began to organize against his schemes and against the motor car, campaigning for a very different idea of what a city was and for what it should be.
