Author and narrator :  Leonid Parfyonov
Leonid Parfyonov’s program “Nabokov’s Century” is devoted to the 100th anniversary of the great Russian and American author. First of all, there are the stories of people who were close to the writer: Yelena Vladimirovna Nabokova-Sikorskaya, ‘the beloved sister of the beloved brother’ as Vladimir Vladimirovich called her, and Nabokov’s son, Dmitry Vladimirovich.
Nabokov, who became a classic writer in two languages, two literatures, is an exceptional case.
Some filming took place in America where Nabokov had been teaching for some time at the Cornell University as an American professor of the Russian literature. The viewers will see the Petersburg mansion and the house in Rozhdestveno, where the writer spent his happy childhood, as well as the apartments in the Montreaux hotel where Nabokov spent the last 16 years of his life.
