Privet, Yekaterinburg!

“Isn’t it wonderful how we find commonality and ways to share despite politics?” asked Henry Corra during an impromptu speech about the importance of culture at the inaugural Rossiya Film Festival in Yekaterinburg, Russia. The first American filmmaker invited to the former Soviet Union in 23 years, Corra screened two films: Jack and The Disappearance of Mckinley Nolan.

Although creative non-fiction narratives are rarely presented in Russia, Corra was pleased to encounter “sophisticated audiences,” at the festival that “craved thought provoking, artistically innovative work.”
