Plot synopsis
The film is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Alexander Galich’s birth. Why did a known playwright and screenwriter challenge authorities and choose the fate of a disgraced poet and emigrant? He tragically died in Paris, but his songs are still alive. The film uses never-before-seen footage from his personal archives in Russia and France. Starring Leonid Zorin, Yuliy Kim, Vladimir Voinovich, Pavel Lungin, Galina Volchek, Yuriy Kublanovsky, Alena Arkhangelskaya (Galich’s daughter), and others. https://rusdocfilmfest.org/2019-movies-en
