Putin's Kiss

Screenings

2012 Season
London, Toronto

Meet Masha, a 19-year-old who grew up in the Putin era, on her journey through the Kremlin-created Nashi youth movement. This coming-of-age tale focuses on Masha's personal political struggle and paints a grim picture of the Russian political climate. Many see Putin as the one leading Russia back to being a global superpower. Masha grows up with this belief, wholeheartedly supporting Putin's policies and seeking to rid Russia of what Nashi believes are Russia's "enemies"—the political opposition, investigative journalists, and human rights defenders.
