Organizer UCLA

Organizer of FAR FROM MOSCOW: FILM, MUSIC, FOOD, LIFE

UCLA

We doubt the critics, reject the status quo and see opportunity in dissatisfaction. Our campus, faculty and students are driven by optimism. It is not naïve; it is essential. And it has fueled every accomplishment, allowing us to redefine what's possible, time after time.

This can-do perspective has brought us 13 Nobel Prizes, 12 MacArthur Fellows, more NCAA titles than any university and more Olympic medals than most nations. Our faculty and alumni helped create the Internet and pioneered reverse osmosis. And more than 140 companies have been created based on technology developed at UCLA.

What inspires MacArthur Fellows and Rhodes Scholars? What gave Jackie Robinson the courage to become the first African American in Major League Baseball? What was the catalyst that spurred Vint Cerf and Leonard Kleinrock's dream of the Internet?

The answer is optimism. And it is in our DNA.

 

DAVID MACFADYEN

 

David MacFadyen is the author of multiple books on the history of Slavic literature and music, specifically the popular traditions of Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. Having begun his research in the field of Russian poetry, MacFadyen’s attention turned slowly to the role of song. This led to a number of monographs documenting the meaning of sung texts both within and without ideology during the Soviet period. Over the same research term, a major collection of sound recordings developed, and Professor MacFadyen now oversees an archive of more than 2.5 million compositions from Slavic, Baltic, and Central Asian lands...

 

ILYA LAGUTENKO

 

Frontman of Russia's most famous rock band, Mumiy Troll. The band members call themselves “Far Eastern, evergreen romantics.” Mumiy Troll was founded in Vladivostok (Russia’s biggest Pacific port) by frontman Ilya Lagutenko. Since then, these musicians have played gigs worldwide: from Siberia to the Baltics, Mongolia to Greenland — and from Shanghai clubs to Saint Petersburg’s Palace Square. Despite international renown, they remain fresh and very keen to experiment — further still from home.

 

A genuine disregard for canonical rock quickly made them the coolest, biggest band in Russia. A chain of Number One singles, media awards, and sold-out arena tours followed. Starting with the release of their debut and DIY album in 1997, Mumiy Troll rapidly became one of Russia’s most prominent bands; online they have managed more than 100 million downloads. “MT” were the first group to appear on MTV Russia, to represent Russia at Eurovision, and win every domestic award possible. All the same, the ensemble remains committed to the DIY philosophy of their roots.

 

 KARTINA.TV

 

“Kartina TV was specifically designed for Russian-speaking individuals located in the United States and Canada, who want to enjoy their favorite television stations native to Russia, the Ukraine, Armenia, Belarus, as well as many other countries throughout the former Soviet Union. And with more than 150 channels, we are the industry leader in Russian online television. Whether you’re looking for popular Russian TV shows, classic and new-release movies, late night talk shows, children’s programming, HD channels, sports, comedy, or music, we have enough variety to satisfy every member of your family.”
