Russian Pals Start New Lives in Post-Wall Berlin in Film Russendisko
When the Berlin Wall falls in 1989, the city becomes one of the most exciting places in the world, and Soviet Jews flood into Berlin, including Vladimir and his best pals Mischa and Andrej. Mischa, who is Russian but not Jewish, can only get a three-month visa, while Vladimir and Andrej receive permanent residence permits. Follow these friends as one dreams of starting a music career, another meets the most beautiful woman he's ever seen and they all open new chapters of their lives. This D.C. premiere of Russendisko screens as part of the 24th annual Washington Jewish Film Festival.
