The films in this initial collection all hail from the Lenfilm studio, from a pool of thousands we have handpicked only the finest examples of the varied genres and styles of Soviet and Russian film. At first, we purchased the digital copies and rights from a rights holder “Lenfim Video Company.” At present, the rights to some of these feature films belong to the ‘United State Kino-collection’ with whom we are in touch. Majority of the classics we work with belong to public domain. Some open up a window onto lost times while others illuminate themes that cut across cultures and centuries. They will shine once more.
