Today's Top Story: Khlebnikov's 'Dolgaya schastlivaya zhizn' playing at Russian Resurrection Film Festival

on July 25, 2013

Dolgaya schastlivaya zhizn (A Long and Happy Life), directed by Boris Khlebnikov, is representative of a new trend in Russian film-making: "ultra-realistic," as the director of the Russian Resurrection Film Festival Nicholas Maksymow christened it. As opposed to other Russian films which may focus on graphic violence and social realism, Dolgaya schastlivaya zhizn tells the story of an ostensibly indistinct man who faces tribulations.

The 10th Russian Resurrection Film Festival is the largest festival of its kind outside of Russia. It started July 3 in Melbourne, Australia and concludes August 4 in Byron Bay, Australia. Aside from Dolgaya schastlivaya zhizn, the festival is showing other Russian films from Anton's Right Here to Legend No. 17. [The Sydney Morning Herald]
