This found footage film is a collaboration between two Russian and two American filmmakers, who worked primarily with the collection of local video archive Media Burn. The film is a powerful commentary on media manipulation and the U.S.-Russia relationship. It is composed of four 15-minute chapters: “Deceive with Belief” by Lori Felker, “Denial Ain’t Just a River in Egypt” by Dimitri Devyatkin, “This is a Test” by Dmitrii Kalashnikov, and “Who Will Remember You Forever?” by Mikhail Zheleznikov. The event will be followed by discussion with the filmmakers.
