The first screen adaptation of “Anna Karenina” was produced in the very beginning of the 20th century. Since then this Russian novel became one of the most popular sources for inspiration of cinematographers all over the world. The most beautiful and absolutely legendary actresses were involved in visualisation of that stunning and suffering character created by Leo Tolstoy almost a century and a half ago.
During our conversation we’ll try to understand reasons of such durable attraction comparing different film versions between each other and the novel itself.

The event is part of the UK-Russia Creative Bridge Programme 2020-21 organised by the Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy in Moscow with the support of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
