PLAYING THE VICTIM

  • Release Year: 2006
  • Runtime: 95 minutes
  • Country: Russia
In this black-humored Russian Hamlet by one of Moscow's top theater directors, a young slacker receives nocturnal visits from his father's ghost and literally "plays the victim" in crime reconstruction videos. Observing a farcical justice system with a brash collage of visual styles, this acerbic depiction of contemporary Moscow chronicles Valya's dangerously escalating disgust with his world. Grand Prize Winner, Rome Film Festival. |Read More

RUSSIAN WINTER

  • Release Year: 2012
  • Runtime: 94 minutes
  • Directed By: Petter Ringbom
  • Country: USA, Russia
Brooklyn-born John Forté was a Grammy-nominated musician in The Fugees at 21 and a federal prison inmate at 26. When his prison sentence was remarkably commuted in 2008, Forté was given a second chance to share his talents with the world. Chronicling his concert tour across Russia, this inspirational documentary takes us on Forté's personal journey—one that's as much about having his music heard as it is about hearing and learning from the music of others. |Read More
