‘Living Pushkin’ is the project prepared for the 200th anniversary since the poet’s birthday. It’s a documentary story about the poet’s life and the era that went down in history as “Pushkin’s era”.
Episode by episode, Pushkin’s life unfolds before our eyes as a true ‘encyclopedia of Russian life’: recollections of peasants alternate with excerpts from Pushkin’s letters; the narrator tells about the duel code, the work of secret police, the rules of exile, the drinking tradition and the drinks market, the Emperor’s Theatre and brides’ fairs…
The TV film does not just retell Pushkin’s biography known from school lessons, it also provides some facts that can rock the stereotypes connected with the life and work of the poet and depict his amazing life and the circumstances of his equally amazing death in the new light.
