MIPCOM Spotlight: Star Media


Star Media is presenting two docudramas that shed light on the events leading up to the Russian Revolution, which marks its 100th anniversary this year.

The Russian Revolution spans 8 episodes, while Lenin tells the life story of the ideologist and leader of the October Revolution over 12 episodes. “These projects are unique at their core,” says Vlad Ryashin, the general producer of Star Media. “They were created thanks to the exclusive rights of Star Media to use secret archives and through cooperation with established historians from Russia and other countries. Viewers will be able to delve deeper into the essence of the events of 1917 through the presentation of new facts, as well as see a detailed portrait of Vladimir Lenin that until now was unknown to the world.”

Ryashin adds, “The combination of documentary and fictional forms, created on a verified and historically authentic basis, advantageously distinguishes our projects.”
