The course draws on 12 post-Soviet films as a source of sociological data on a rapidly changing society. The films reflect the inner codes of the traditional Russian culture (communality, the spiritual quest, and drinking habits, etc.), as well as the new social realities (sense of money, market behavior, organized crime, and economy of violence, etc.) The films present a fresh artistic perspective on social developments that are not normally reported in the Western press.
