I Want to Live in Russia

“I want to live in Russia…but I’m not quite sure!” – the premier of a documentary film about people who have made a choice to live in Russia. After the film, there will be a discussion.

Questions for Discussion:

  • Why do so many people who were born in Russia move abroad? Is it worth thinking about staying, or about coming back?
  • Does life in Russia provide a real opportunity to live a completely and freely?
  • Are the concepts of domicile and fatherland really even valid in our era of globalization?

  • Andrey Kochetkov, founder of the Tom Sawyer Fest;
  • Yury Vojtsekhovsky, banker, entrepreneur and social activist, ex-chairman of the Board of Directors of the Russian Public Opinion Research Centre;
  • Vera Vojtsekhovskaya-Kachalova, a descendant of the Kachalov Russian aristocratic family;
