The (10th!!) Annual RusDocFilmFest was a huge success! Congrats to my mom for organizing and hosting, @katyafomina for advertising, to all the volunteers, film-directors, assistants, and DCTV crew for a job well done! 20 documentaries screened with sold out tickets for opening and closing night! Hope everyone enjoyed the show! Thanks @nycmayor for the greeting!
MOMENT (#Iran) ► The film reminds us of Sophie’s Choice and how unbearable a decision could possibly / impossibly be. And without using up any time, we are given a backstory just from looking at the father. And where’s the mother? Exactly… This director’s command of narrative construction and efficiency is worthy of the audience’s time and respect. How much of a harrowing moment and sense of despair can you create in a 60-second film? This Iranian filmmaker masterfully answers that question.
