Sobytie (Sergei Loznitsa)

The Event

Sobytie | Sergei Loznitsa

August 1991: a short-lived coup d’état attempts to overthrow Gorbachev and restore communism. Crowds flood the streets and Yeltsin asserts his authority. Loznitsa, a leading exponent of socially-aware documentary filmmaking, revisits a turbulent episode of the end of the USSR and the birth of Russian democracy, with its parallels to the crisis that is currently afflicting his native Ukraine.
