Six films to watch on this year’s ‘Day of Russian Cinema’

Cinema has always been an important aspect of Russian culture. Lenin is said to have asserted that, of all the art forms, the most important of all was that of cinema («... вы должны твердо помнить, что из всех искусств для нас важнейшим является кино»). 

The Day of Russian Cinema (День российского кино) falls every year on the 27th of August. On this very day in 1919, Vladimir Lenin signed a decree that declared the nationalisation of the country’s cinematic and photographic industries. In 1979 - 60 years after this event -, the day was declared a national holiday; from then on, the ‘Day of Soviet Cinema’ (the name, of course, changed after the collapse of the USSR in 1991) would be celebrated every year on the 27th of August.
