Russian Jews, Film 1: Before The Revolution

Cinema

Directed by Sergey Nurmamed, narrated by Leonid Parfenov| 2016 | Russia | Russian with English subtitles | 86mins | Certificate 18

The first part of a documentary trilogy about the phenomenon of Russian Jews – in Russia and beyond.

Russian Jews is a documentary trilogy created and narrated by Leonid Parfenov in partnership with Genesis Philantropy Group that studies perceptions of Jews in Russia throughout the ever-changing history of the twentieth century and their role in the history of the country and the world. Before the Revolution is the first film of the trilogy. Russian Jews is the first documentary project by Parfenov to hit the big screen.

In Perfenov’s own words: "The whole history of Russian Jews, Russian, Germans, Russians, Georgians – it’s a relatively long period in the history of their people, when they massively moved to 'Russianness'. This is a fantastic story with no analogs. Now it is impossible to imagine that someone was deliberately cool to renounce their nationality, language, faith, culture, to go with the Russian spirit".
