(DCP, 96m) dir Dmitry Krymov w/Mikhail Filippov, Viktoriya Isakova, Maria Smolnikova and Timofey Trubuntsev. A metaphor about the fate of Russia, its rulers and eternal values, Dmitry Krymov’s “Boris” subverts its ideas behind the cover of Pushkin’s text to show a direct line of the current governance of Russia with its imperial past, as well as all the myths on which Russian identity now rests. A flying raven, a poet, a folk choir, saints and sinners, living and dead – all come to life in the twilight of the Provision Warehouses of the Moscow Museum in this new interpretation of a classic work by one of the world’s most renowned stage directors. Based on the play “Boris Godunov” by Alexander Pushkin.
