My friend Boris Nemtsov. Director Zosya Rodkevich

https://vimeo.com/157186803

The film is an intimate portrait of Russian politician and opposition leader, Boris Nemtsov, who was assassinated in February, 2015 approximately 200 yards away from the Kremlin. Boris Nemtsov, former Vice-Prime Minister of Boris Yeltsin, was a notorious and uncompromising adversary of the Putin-led Russian government.  His assassination triggered rioting and protesting against murders of opponents in Russia today. This film about Nemtsov is a tribute to the memory of a young, talented, and brave man. The camera accompanies him during his pre-election journeys and also in less formal moments.

Zosya Rodkevich, the talented young movie director, the graduate of the School of Documentary Film and Theater of  Marina Razbezhkina and Mikhail Ugarov, will present her movie and participate in Q/A session.


“Save My Speech Forever”. Director Roman Liberov

The documentary is a tragic life story of one of the greatest Russian poets, Osip Mandelstam – who died for the opportunity to write. The author, Roman Liberov, dedicates this film as a testament to the famous Russian poet/essayist by utilizing extracts from poems, letters and reviews, archival documents, and fiction as cinematic tools. Elements of documentary, animation, computer graphics, non-fiction, and puppet scenes that are used in this film, create a film language that does not fit into a specific genre.

The movie will be presented by Roman Sivozhelezov, director of photography.
