Best Documentary filmkunstfest Mecklenburg-Vorpommern 2015

Excerpt of the jury´s statement: (Simon Baumann, Martin Blaney, Volker Koepp):
“This documentary collage, which combines excerpts of film classics, Interviews an impressions of today´s Moscow, is a convincing statement in support of freedom and freedom of art. ”CINEMA: A PUBLIC AFFAIR by Tatiana Brandrup is a cineatic journey into the world of Naum Kleiman, former director of the Moscow Film Museum, and his co-workers. They fight for cinema as a forum for free intellectual exchange, as a path to personal growth and a more open society –in the context of the current political situation in Russia that is a challenging idea.”
