In early 2012, as
the protest movement against Vladimir Putin's government gained steam, Novaya
Gazeta and Moscow's School for Documentary Film and Theater partnered
to send ten young documentarians into the streets to chronicle as much of the
movement as they could. The resulting film, Winter,
Go Away! (Russia, 2012) is a kaleidoscopic vision of the anti-Putin protest
movement as it plans, debates, and confronts the authorities. The
film premiered at the 65th Locarno Film Festival won Best First
Work Award at the Lisbon and Estoril Film Festival. Professor Anthony Anemone of The New School, and Anna Moiseenko, one of the ten directors
of the film, will be on hand to answer questions after the
screening. The film is 81 minutes in Russian with English subtitles.
Anna Moiseenko is
the director of a graduate of Sholokhov Moscow State University for the Humanities
and the School for Documentary Film and Theater. Her first film, Sparta,
Territory of Happiness, about a collective farm trying to survive in the
post-Soviet space, premiered at the ArtDocFest film festival in Moscow in 2012.
