Co-presented by Generation R

Directed by Michael Idov (Russia, Latvia, Czech Republic 2019, 101 min)

In the 1984 Soviet Union, Boris, a Russian-Jewish stand-up comedian, is tormented not only by external oppression and censorship but also by his own insecurities. Fame, combined with lack of personal freedom, is driving him crazy. Once the leaders who dictate what he can and can’t joke about summon him to their villa, the comedian snaps. Armed with the exotic American notion of “insult humor”, he takes his revenge. In Russian with English subtitles.

Generation R programs are supported by The Jewish Education Project with generous funding from Genesis Philanthropy Group.
