“The Oleg Vidov Story” builds on the fascinating biography of one of Russia’s most notable film stars, as it takes viewers inside his contributions to the preservation of film. Oleg’s sweeping journey, from humble beginnings in Mongolia with his loving single mother, extends to his iconic status in the zenith of Soviet filmmaking during the Brezhnev era. His harrowing defection is a lens into artistic repression and shows further constraints of artistic diffusion in the Cold War. Join us for a screening of the film directed by Nadia Tass, followed by a discussion with producer Joan Borsten Vidov and “Oleg” actor Costa Ronin.
