Winter, Go Away! Film Screening and Discussion on the Russian Protest Movement

2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

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.
