Texas Documentary Showcase "Images Of Russia" says
Annual Texas Documentary Showcase "Images of Russia" celebrates its 10th anniversary.
We present two movies made by talented Russian movie- makers.

"Save My Speech Forever" is a tragic life story of one of the greatest Russian poets, Osip Mandelstam – who died for the opportunity to write. The author, Roman Liberov, dedicates this film as a testament to the famous Russian poet/essayist by utilizing extracts from poems, letters and reviews, archival documents, and fiction as cinematic tools.
The movie will be presented by Roman Sivozhelezov, director of photography.

"My friend Boris Nemtsov" is an intimate portrait of Russian politician and opposition leader, Boris Nemtsov, who was assassinated in February, 2015 approximately 200 yards away from the Kremlin. Boris Nemtsov, former Vice-Prime Minister of Boris Yeltsin, was a notorious and uncompromising adversary of the Putin-led Russian government.
Zosya Rodkevich, the talented young movie director, will present her movie and participate in Q/A session.
