Episode Summary

EDIT
Russian Parallel Cinema Part 1 of 3
AIRED:
For 60 years, Russian film was dominated by the state-approved imagery of Socialist Realism: stark scenes of the proletariat; working, farming and soldiering. Making movies outside this milieu meant risking life and limb at the hands of the KGB. When the Soviet Union collapsed, and that threat diminished, Russian filmmakers released six decades of pent-up creative energy. The films that emerged were an insane mish-mash of booze, violence, surrealism, and insanity. Thus Parallel Cinema was born.moreless
