Sobytie - The Event

Documentary, 2015, 74 min.

In August 1991, a failed coup d'état in Moscow by a group of communist reactionaries expedited the demise of the ailing Soviet Union. As the hammer and sickle that flew over the Kremlin was replaced by the tricolour of the Russian Federation, the event was hailed around the world as marking the fall of communism and the birth of Russian democracy. A quarter of a century later — and at a particularly trying time for Russian democracy — Ukrainian filmmaker Sergei Loznitsa follows Maïdan, his monumental documentary about last year's historic protests in Kiev, with The Event, a powerful montage film that revisits a crucial turning point in Russian history.
