Documenting Russia: Oleg's Choice

IU Cinema

Directed by Elena Volochine and James Keogh. Director Elena Volochine is scheduled to be present. Oleg’s Choice offers riveting embedded footage from the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict in the Donbas. This is a rare immersion into the private lives of two Russian combatants, Oleg and Max, who have chosen to fight on the separatists’ side in Ukraine. Their commitment and motivations unravel as tough interviews force them to confront the harsh realities of war-gone-wrong and their roles in a deadly cause they no longer believe in. In Russian with English subtitles.
