School of Seduction

Alina Rudnitskaya — DenmarkAustriaNorwayRussia — 2019 — 97'

Three Russian women in their 30s who all seek the same: security, a higher social status and eternal happiness. Not an easy wish to fulfil in today’s Russia, where the patriarchy dominates. So our heroines take matters into their own hands and join a course in the art of seducing a man – preferably a rich one. Seven years of recordings paint a sometimes tragicomic picture of gender roles and femininity in Putin’s Russia.
