Finding Babel

Rated NR 89 min. 2016

75 years after iconic Soviet writer Isaac Babel's wrongful execution, his grandson comes closer to the elusive truths of his heritage. In Finding Babel, Andrei Malaev-Babel confronts lingering traces of a turbulent history that echo in his grandfather's subversive writing and in the conflicts and climate of today's Ukraine and Russia. Babel's life story and his fiction are woven into Andrei's search with ethereal animation that puts viewers, like Babel's readers, somewhere between fantasy and reality.
