Sitting Between Two Chairs
USA / 2012 / 33 mins / In Russian and English with English subtitles
Directed by Ira Gardner
Awards: World Premiere!
Sitting Between Two Chairs tells the story of world renowned Russian photojournalist Leonid Bergoltsev, who documented the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War and is now living in America without possibility of returning to his homeland. His work is often compared to Henri Cartier-Bresson, with whom he was acquainted, and he was published in Life Magazine in 1972. Mr. Bergoltsev offers testimony to the possibility that the photography of the Soviet Era just might be more truthful than the imagery seen in contemporary American media. He is a man stuck between two cultures who makes interesting comparisons between film and digital photography and Communism and Capitalism with wit, passion, and conviction.
