Germany 2015, 100 min, Russian and German, Hebrew & English subtitles
“Cinema is a tool through which one can discover the world… a non-didactic art that provides a bridge between the soul of the artist and your own soul… the place to find honest answers to honest questions.” Naum Kleiman, an outstanding Russian intellectual, is convinced that film can be a powerful weapon in the hands of a civil society struggling to survive under an oppressive government. In 2005, when the Moscow Municipality sold the building that housed the Moscow Film Museum that Kleiman headed, he found alternative, makeshift locations to store its enormous film archive. Together with a dedicated team, he even continued to hold screenings at changing venues. This cinematic document is a stark reflection of contemporary reality in Russia.
