BLESSING

“Blessing” is one film from the series of short films produced as a direct reaction to the recent political situation in Russia.
On April 14, 2014 Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a right-wing politician, publicly attacked two female journalists simply because one of them asked about the sanctions against Ukraine. He ordered to his guards “rape” and “kiss her hard” regardless of her pregnancy and threatened another one with unemployment when she defended her colleague. None of male journalists stood behind the women and tried to stop the high-ranked attacker and his followers.
