Leningrad, 1971. Russian author Sergei Dovlatov, who will gain fame posthumously, spends his days chasing after daily writing jobs and a membership at the Writer’s Union, which is a requirement for getting published. At nights, he gets together with other writers and artists in town at parties where jazz is played. In Dovlatov, which premiered at the Berlinale, director Alexey German Jr. (Under Electric Clouds) chronicles six days in the life of its eponymous protagonist and paints the portrait of the intellectuals of the era and their relationship with Brezhnev-era Soviet Union. The film features references from John Steinbeck to Vladimir Nabokov and mesmerisingly choreographed scenes.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
