Aleksandr Sokurov

Aleksandr Sokurov

For a long time, until the arrival of Gorbachev’s Perestroika, the films of Alexandr Sokurov (Irkutsk Oblast, Siberia, 1951) were banned from public screening by the censors. Sokurov has won many international awards including four FIPRESCI prizes, two Tarkovski Awards and the Golden Lion in Venice for his film Faust (2011), the fourth in his tetralogy on power. In 1995 the European Film Academy declared him to be one of the best film directors in the world.
