Stage Russia is an intercultural project that films performances presented by the finest theater companies in Russia and distributes them in HD, translated and subtitled, into cinemas, arts centers and universities across the globe. 

In recent years, they've added Russian-centric documentaries and arthouse cinema into the mix with the aim to share the beauty of Russian culture, which in these politically charged times can act as an olive branch between East and West, unified by something universally understood.

Runtime: 
75 minutes

The Great Northern Way unites visual experiences from 7 Russian regions, from Archangelsk oblast in the west to Chukotka in the east. It faithfully follows the journey of the 17th Century explorer, Semen Dezhnev, whose discoveries carry an importance comparable with that of Ferdinand Magellan, proving the existence of the strait between Asia and America. Reconstructing Dezhnev's route, the film captures some of the most breathtaking footage ever captured on film.
