Баба на свидание

 

 The woman to be married off

 La Femme au rendez vous

 
Directed by : Mariya GODOVANNAYA (Мария ГОДОВАННАЯ)
 

Plot synopsis
The presiding Russian state patriarch famously took the other path (that of divorce). Video artist Masha Godovannaya transforms Putin’s legendary TV talk show appearance (”First off I have to see to it that my ex-wife marries again, then I’ll look after myself.”) into an incredibly revealing freak show: the anti-emancipatory message is unmistakeable, the frozen smiles of the (overwhelmingly male) audience unbearable.
