Russia in Three Acts

putin_yeltsin_gorbachev_1

The third August week of 1991 has become an unexpected milestone to the citizens of Moscow. During a single August week, the capital city has seen the arrival of tanks to the Red Square, the occupation of the Russian parliament and the birth of the political star of Boris Yeltsin. Join DAFilms.com to recall the key stages of modern Russian history represented by three presidential figures; Gorbachev, Yeltsin and Putin. Watch the three-part study RED TSARS. PRESIDENTS OF RUSSIA by Russian documentary legend Vitaly Mansky in the week from August 18 to 24 for free!


Vitaly Mansky, internationally acclaimed documentary director known for his provocations at home, has been exploring the problems of modern Russian society on a long-term basis. Whether he deals with the Russian youth, the recollections of childhood in the communist era or the journey of an oil pipeline across Europe, he offers the viewers a critical and complex spectacle representing the complicated nature of the Russian nation.

It is therefore not surprising that it was him who decided to make a film portrait trialogy introducing the most powerful men of modern Russian history: the first and last Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev, the first president of the Russian federation Boris Yeltsin and the present Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

Watch the three hour-long accounts of men who have become the symbols of three distinct stages of the course of modern Russian history; the solitary Soviet president Gorbachev whose unsuccessful political struggle with both communist putschists and the democratic movement has definitely buried the relict of the Soviet Union; the winner of the August putsch Boris Yeltsin whose celebrated democratic idea met with a strong criticism of the slow economic reforms; as well as the last “red tsar” Vladimir Putin whose contribution to modern Russian history is being evaluated by the world right now.

Meet three Russian presidents, three symbols of Russian power and three key periods of modern Russian history in the week from August 18 to 24 at DAFilms.com for free!

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
