Aleksei German

Director

Aleksei German (1938-2013) had a distinctive directorial voice, which has provided a subversive commentary on Russia’s history. An artist who never preached, his challenging works explored moral relativism and ambiguity with humour and intrigue. His best known works are Trial on the Road (1971) and Khrustalyov, My Car (1998), which both explored controversial moments in history. Successful and highly regarded in his lifetime, his films remain powerful and timeless in quality.
