37th International Film Festival in Gothenburg (Sweden) will present an extensive program of Russian documentaries and several high-profile films about Russia.
"We have a large and broad Russian film program that is both artistically strong and that takes up current events in Russia. Several of the films touch upon subjects about the distribution of the country’s resources and the restrictions on freedom of speech," - says Marit Kapla, the artistic director of the film festival.
In addition, there will be screened "The Condemned" by Nick Reed and Mark Franchetti, made in co-production with Russian TV channel 24DOK as well as short film "Winter" by Christina Picci from the project "Cinetrain".
Also, the special program includes such documentaries about Russia as "ELEKTRO MOSKVA" (Austria, dir. Elena Tikhonova and Dominique Spritzendorfer) and "Putin's Games" (Israel, Germany, Austria, dir. Alexander Gentelev).
