Stage Russia: Iran Conference
director: Igor Sergeev, Vladimir Kuznetsov
writer: Ivan Vyrypaev
runtime: 2 hr. 30 min.
Igor Sergeev and Vladimir Kuznetsov's multi Golden Mask nominated production of Ivan Vyrypaev's thought-provoking and timely "Iran Conference" takes place at a symposium in Denmark where influential public figures and scientists gather to discuss the current clash of modern Western liberal ideology with traditional religious consciousness and way of life. An attempt to present reports prepared by the lecturers quickly transforms into a lively conversation about spirituality, ethical dilemmas and personal experiences related to the condition of humanity today. Vyrypaev's aim is, of course, not to deliberate on the East/West friction, but to present a true-to-life philosophical parable about humanity, faith and love.
