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. 

Presented in Russian w/ English subtitles.

​Vladimir Sorokin (Norma /The Norm, Goluboe Salo / Blue Salo), Den' Oprichnika / Day of the Oprichnik) is a man who blew up the Soviet literary tradition and built his own world on its ruins. SOROKIN TRIP is the first documentary about the most significant writer and dramatist in modern Russian literature. Sorokin for the first time talks about his own life with utmost frankness; his childhood in a worker's settlement near Moscow, his life in the workshops of underground artists, the persecution he suffered at the hands of the KGB and pro-Kremlin youth organizations, and his love for Russian literature and cosmic cold.

Filmed on location in Moscow and Berlin.
