“Winter, Go Away!” was filmed by the graduates of Marina Razbezhkina and Mikhail Ugarov’s Documentary Filmmaking and Theater School, on the initivative of Novaya Gazeta, an independet Russian newspaper. Ten young directors did not part from their camera for two months. The result was a chronicle of Russia’s winter protests – a chronicle of thos who make the political climate and thos who are dissatisfied with the makers. We see people, their faces, their conversations rallies, victories and defeats ahead fo the presidential election. A living camera interacts with living heroes. “Winter, Go Away” is funny in places – and yet contains an overall sadness. Its nearly 80 minutes go by very quickl – so quickly, that one immediately wonders, what comes next.
