DOVLATOV @ Berlin

DOVLATOV by Alexey German Jr. 

(Russia/Poland/Serbia, 126 min., 2018, world premiere)

DOVLATOV charts six days in the life of brilliant, ironic writer who saw far beyond the rigid limits of ’70s Soviet Russia. Sergey Dovlatov and poet Joseph Brodsky, both of whom would emigrate to New York, fought to preserve his own talent and decency while watching their artist friends getting crushed by the iron-willed state machinery.
