Algonquin documentary production students cover and discover WIFF 2012
Instead, they turned out to fill the Great Hall in the shiny new Wakefield LaPêche Community Centre to watch the second offering in WIFF's 2012 program: Putin's Kiss, a political reality drama set against Vladimir Putin's new Russia, by Danish director Lise Birk Pederson.
Director Lise Birk Pederson: "When Masha showed me around, she brought me to a tent, which Nashi had fitted out as an emergency head quarters in case a revolution should break out in Russia. From the head quarters, then, Nashi would be able to defend Russia under any circumstances. This was a serious constellation.
Later I learned that the head quarters, this mobile office, was part of a much larger strategy aimed at young members: It gave the impression that the political opposition posed a great threat to Russian security and they were therefore to be considered enemies of Russia."
