About the Film

DEAR COMRADES!
(DOROGIE TOVARISHCHI)
2020, Neon, 121 min, Russia, Dir: Andrei Konchalovsky

When the communist government raises food prices in 1962, the rebellious workers from the small industrial town of Novocherkassk go on strike. The massacre which then ensues is seen through the eyes of a devout party activist. DEAR COMRADES! received critical praise out of the Venice Film Festival, with Variety calling it “scintillating” and “meticulous and majestic, epic in scope and tattoo-needle intimate in effect,” and The Playlist describing it as “a fascinating blend of dark satire and bleak archaeology.”
