“A Feast in Time of Plague” is one film from the series of short films produced as a direct reaction to the recent political situation in Russia.
On March 18, 2014 President Putin gave a speech to both chambers of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation. He declared the Crimea as a part of the Russian Federation.
He said: “Esteemed friends, we have gathered here today because of an issue that is of vital importance, of historical significance for us all. On March 17, a referendum took place in the Crimea; it was held in full compliance with democratic procedures and the norms of international law. Voter turnout was more than 82 %. More than 96 % voted for reunification with Russia. The figures are extremely compelling.”
He gave the speech. The war continues. The plague have started.
