Television had become an essential part of our daily life. It is impossible to imagine our civilization without it. And it is hard to believe  that television was actually invented less than 100 years ago.

The film “Iconoscope” by acclaimed director Vitaly Manskiy is a chance to grasp the entire history of television in 100 minutes of enthralling and paradoxical spectacle.

There are two more principal characters in this film, both of them TV stars, Dan Rather and Igor Kirillov. For the audiences in the U.S. and the Soviet Union their names were synonymous with the television.

Duration of screening: 100 min.

Language: Russian with English subtitles
