Event Details

 

Russian Cultural Center “Our Texas”is pleased to announce its 6th Annual Russian Documentary Film Showcase in Texas “Images of Russia”.

The films about the life in modern Russia and other parts of former Soviet Union will be screened in four cities in Texas – Houston, Dallas, Austin and College Station.

This year we  present the following movies: “My Father Evgeni” by Andrei Zagdansky,  “Winter Go Away!” by Marina Razbezhkina’s School of Documentary Film,  “Artists of Odessa” by Dmitry Khavin, and    “Odnoralov’ s Coat” by Nina Zaretsky.

Our honored guests are directors Andrei Zagdansky from New York  and Anna Moiseenko - Marina Razbezhkina’s School of Documentary Film. They will present their movies and participate in Q&A sessions.

“My father Evgeni”, Andrei Zagdansky (2010). Filmmaker Andrei Zagdansky and his father Evgeni both lived a life in cinema. In 1992, when Andrei left the Ukraine for America, they communicated by letters, sharing impressions between two continents. Andrei draws upon cross-continental correspondence between him and his father and beguiling footage from Soviet archives to create this intimate portrait of a family living through dramatic changes.

“Winter, Go Away!”,  Marina Razbezhkina’s School of Documentary Film (2012). Ten director graduates from Marina Razbezhkina’s School of Documentary Film and Documentary Theatre lived with a camera for two months in order to chronicle the last “Russian winter” and its popular uprising against Vladimir Putin’s presidential run. People, faces, conversations, protests, failures and triumphs come together to chronicle the campaign.

“Odnoralov’s Coat”, Nina Zaretskaya (2010). A film-portrait of the Russian-American artist Michael Odnoralov, a main organizer of apartment shows and the first government sanctioned exhibitions of nonofficial artists in the Soviet Union in 1970s.

“Artists of Odessa”, Dmitry Khavin  (2011). This is a raw, humorous and nostalgic look at life and contemporary art in post-Soviet Odessa.
