A Bitter Taste of Freedom

Frihetens bittra smak

Marina Goldovskaya

A highly affecting documentary about Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya who was murdered in 2006 after her disturbing reports from Chechnya. “Apt to provoke moral outrage in anyone short of Vladimir Putin.” — Variety


Alexander Sokurov

Russia’s master of art cinema Aleksandr Sokurov (Russian Ark, Mother and Son) won the top prize at Venice for this phantasmagoric vision of the German legend. “A rude, lewd take on a classic, and irresistible.” — Financial Times

In the Fog

V tumane

Sergei Loznitsa

An intense, slow-burning Russian war drama that considers moral choice in the moral vacuum of occupation. “Truly eloquent and moving… Actors and landscapes alike could have come out of 19-century Russian paintings.” — Sight & Sound
