The Russian Film Industry Under Putin

April 17, 2019, 3:00-4:00pm (RSVP required)
5th Floor Conference Room, Wilson Center, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC

Join the Wilson Center's Kennan Institute for a discussion with film critic Anton Dolin on today's Russian film industry. Is Russian filmmaking in decline, as its numerous critics believe, or is it rising from its knees, as the Russian authorities claim? Anton Dolin, film critic and chief editor of Russia’s oldest film magazine “Iskusstvo Kino” (The Art of Cinema), will discuss the ups and downs of the Putin-era filmmaking--from experimental and independent cinema to record-breaking blockbusters. RSVP is required.
