It’s been almost three years since the bloodiest war in the history of humanity began – World War One. Vladimir Lenin has long been living abroad and has recently moved to Zurich. Having devoted his whole life to preparing the revolution, Lenin “missed” its beginning and is now looking for any opportunity to return to Russia and take control of the situation.
Vladimir Khotinenko is a Russian director, screenwriter, producer. People’s Artist of Russia, member of the European Film Academy. Chair of the Directing Department at the Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography (VGIK) since 1995. He has been teaching at the High Courses for Scriptwriters and Directors for many years, and at the Mikhalkov Academy since 2015.
His films have won awards at many prestigious film festivals in Russia and abroad. Vladimir Khotinenko’s films have also been recipients of the Russian NIKA Academy of Cinema Arts and the Golden Eagle awards. The Golden Eagle award by the National Film Awards of Russia was also bestowed on his work related to the great Russian writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky, which, in addition to reflecting historical events also presents the modern interpretation of the classic text and the eternal nature of philosophical questions of good versus evil, faith versus lack of belief, ignoble versus honorable behavior.
