The debut Russian anime “First Squad” is like two films in one in the sense that different audiences will see in it completely different things. There is the hope that someday the two will merge into a unified whole, although in order for that to take place the project needs to be profitable. Whether this will happen still remains to be seen, although the film did turn out quite well.“First Squad” follows a screenplay written by two Russian emigres – Misha Shprits and Alyosha Klimov (named as such in the credits), but the director, animator and composer are all Japanese. The project adds the mystique of the...

In the mid-twentieth century, the spirit and voice of the Russian people, with all its power, made itself known in the works of the writer, actor and director Vasily Shukshin. “Living on the land are Russian people, and they chose one. He will speak for them all – retentive of the people’s memory, wise with its wisdom.” These words couldn’t be better suited to the man himself.Shukshin’s life, which began eighty years ago, was typical of so many Soviet people. The son of peasants, he lived through the famine and cold of a village that had been subjected to dekulakization, as well as the difficulty of the...

“Neither vocation, nor confession, nor the blood of forefathers makes a person belong to a people… He who thinks in a language belongs to its people...” Vladimir Dal From the editor: In the town of Lugansk, a small museum is devoted to the life and work of Vladimir Dal. In a sense, this museum is a reminder that the Russian world also consists of these half-forgotten corners and that its historical and cultural map is also made up of such inconspicuous details. Finding them and taking inventory, so to speak, is a job in itself. At the end of the 18th century in a small village on the shores of the small Luhan creek in the...

Alexander Solzhenitsyn has passed away. In the obituaries of truly eminent people, there is often the desire to limit one’s words to a single phrase. It seems as if so much is already so clear and that the rest is too difficult to explain within the confines of a single article. Of course, we can recall the writer's biography, the books he wrote, the awards, the articles both old and new, the speeches and the interviews. But these are hardly anything that needs explaining. Part of Solzhenitsyn’s creative legacy, of course, is that he will go down as one of Russia’s greatest writers, although he has arguably entered the top...

On June 23, 1889, Anna Akhmatova (Gorenko) was born in Odessa. It seems that everything possible has already been said about both her life and her work. To contemporary readers it is obvious that Akhmatova’s lines devoted to Pushkin – “idiot horse guardsmen and majestic privy counselors,” “oceans of dirt, betrayals, lies, indifference of friends and simple stupidity,” “heartless and, naturally, ignorant Petersburg,” “secret police surveillance of the poet,” and “the imperial court peeping into every nook and cranny” – relate largely to her own fate. But, on the...

From the editors: Variations on the theme of “Clap, hear the thunder of victory, and celebrate brave Russian!” which is showing no signs of leaving the pages of the Russian media throughout the month of May, should cause us to think a bit, at least about why it is important to us. And, most importantly, about what we are to do with all of it. After all, nothing simply happens in this world without consequence. And if all the steam leaves through the fans’ cheering and discussion about how “Russia is finally lifting itself up off its knees,” then that means we are horribly ineffective and are in fact squandering...
