From Web-Series to Wide-Screen: Russian LGBTQ+ Cinema

What is the value of contemporary cinema set against conservative logic? Can a person not associated with LGBTQ+ direct a movie about the community? Is there a right way to talk about LGBTQ+? These are the questions addressed by V–A–С cinema programme curator Kirill Adibekov, director of ‘Outlaw’ Ksenia Ratushnaya, director of the web-series ‘Here I Come’ Andrey Fenochka and journalist, author of the queer-journal o-zine.ru Anna Filippova.

This episode is in Russian.
