Vladimir Motyl

Director

Vladimir Motyl was a Soviet film director born in Belarus. After his father’s arrest, Vladimir and his mother were exiled to the Northern Urals, where he became fascinated by theatre and cinema. Despite his films being dearly loved by the public, he fell into disfavour for “disrespectful” treatment of the Second World War. Nevertheless, he was invited to direct a film which was to become one of the most popular of the Soviet “Red Westerns”, White Sun of the Desert.
