Overview

Filmmaker Lise Birk Pederson profiles a politically active Russian teenager who begins to question her affiliation with the controversial Nashi movement after she befriends a dissident reporter who falls victim to a brutal assault. Once upon a time, Masha Drokova believed wholeheartedly in Vladimir Putin's vision of a new, more powerful Russia. And almost as soon as she joined Nashi, Masha seemed to be on the fast track to success. But from the moment Masha opens up an honest dialogue with a circle of liberal journalists, her political career begins to stall out. When outspoken blogger Oleg Kashin makes some critical remarks concerning Nashi's strong-arm tactics, an uncomfortable situation turns downright dangerous.

Interesting. Putin has a way of making it so that his opinion really matters in the lives of these people, like his mood. This is something common among Russian leaders and not something I fully understand. It brings out the worst in people. Life seems to flow better when there are established rules that we all agree to. Nashi seems like a good idea for a few reasons, as it's more fair than what Obama has done to us, but Putin really needs to evaluate how much he affects people. He does not seem to understand this, or he doesn't care, which the video illustrates. The girl seems like she fell into a situation designed to relieve her of her attention, which doesn't matter. I would have looked for a way out of that too. I would have said I was a lesbian.--Kaela
