Controversy Surrounds Screening Of Gay Teen Documentary in Russia - VIDEO

404 film

A Russian television channel has created controversy surrounding the screening of a documentary about gay teens last month at the Pacific Meridians festival in Vladivostok, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

According to People's Patriotic Channel, despite the 18+ rating of the documentary Deti 404 (Children 404), tickets to the screening were sold to minors without a proper ID check.

404404 refers to an online forum for Russian-speaking LGBTQ teens and to an error message displayed on Russian computer screens when people attempt to navigate to a web page that doesn't exist. 

People's Patriotic Channel claims that the documentary violates Russia's "gay propaganda" law.

A screening of the film in St Petersburg last April was disrupted by Orthodox Christian activists and police.

The festival's organizers have said the theater is to blame for the incident but added that the inclusion of the film into one of the festival's sections was important as it deals with a major social issue.

Festival programming director Natalia Timofeyeva said “this film is very useful because we are striving for a tolerant society in which people who are different can also exist.”

Jimmy Fallon Presents Russian President Vladimir Putin's Reviews Of American Films: VIDEO

PutinReviews

Jimmy Fallon delivered some very real news in hilarious fashion last night, commenting on the proposed boycott of Hollywood films in Russia based on U.S. sanctions and anti-Russian representation. It is undeniably true (and somewhat unfortunate) that the Russian villain has become an archetypical figure in American films and also, as politician Vladislav Grib commented, that "Russian pictures have a hard time reaching the screens and sometimes they are unable to do that at all.” As The Independent reported, a Russian ban could severely impact international box office for American cinema: "Russia's box office is the eighth largest film market in the world." 

Fallon seemed to take the news in stride, however, and presented his audience with "Putin Movie Reviews" of popular Hollywood films Frozen, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and new release, A Walk Among the Tombstones. It's a very funny bit, and they seemed to capture Putin's cynical voice perfectly.
