Directors of documentaries face formidable task of bringing forth real life stories and imbuing them with artistry and imagery, thus creating works of art. The Russian documentary film has recently undergone changes that affect the essence of this art form. Antonina Udalova, coordinator of Message to Man, the international film festival in St. Petersburg, is in unique position to appreciate the scope of changes in documentary filmmaking. She will speak about the state of contemporary Russian documentary and show excerpts from select films. Russian Filmmakers Sergey Bosenko, Ivan Golovnev and Alina Rudnitskaya will participate.
The presentation is in conjunction with the Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival in New York. CEC ArtsLink’s Open World Cultural Leaders Program brings Sergey Bosenko, Ivan Golovnev, Alina Rudnitskaya and Antonina Udalova to participate in the Festival. Their films will run on November 6th.
