This series has been made possible thanks to Masha Godovannaya, curator of the New Experiemental Russian Cinema program at the Anthology Film Archive, Pittsburgh Filmmakers, and the University of Pittsburgh. The participation of the three young directors in the open forum on the new Russian cinema has been made possible thanks to a grant from the Trust for Mutual Understanding.
