Victory Day

DIRECTOR: Alina Rudnitskaya

While most Russians celebrate the annual Victory Day by commemorating their country’s defeat of Nazi Germany decades ago, six gay and lesbian couples share their own stories of government-instituted oppression. In-home interviews reveal the domesticity and normalcy of these ardent pairs, juxtaposed with clips of homophobic Russians in power and the raucous celebrations just outside the windows of the subjects—the true enemy is obvious.
