“Radio Dolin” – a film critic’s project Anton Dolina, where he talks about cinema and not only. The new issue deals with films that may be banned in Russia when the updated law on “gay propaganda” comes into force.

On November 23, the State Duma adopted in the second reading a package of bills banning “propaganda” of homosexuality. The deputies want to expand the already existing law “on the promotion of non-traditional sexual relations” among minors and prohibit the dissemination of any information about LGBT + in social networks, news aggregators, advertising and in any works of art.

The new law, in particular, will prohibit issuing distribution certificates for films that contain “materials that promote non-traditional sexual relations or preferences.” They will also not be able to be broadcast on streaming platforms or on television.

Anton Dolin chose 25 outstanding films shot in different countries in different years – from the 1920s to the present day – in which the topic of homosexual relations is somehow touched upon. The list included classics of world cinema, such as paintings by Alfred Hitchcock, Federico Fellini and Wong Kar-wai, and indie hits such as Gus Van Sant’s “My Own Private Idaho” or Lucas Moodysson’s “Show Me Love.”

In addition, the film critic talks about new films that will no longer make it to Russian distribution because of the “gay propaganda” they contain. Among them are “The Whale” by Darren Aronofsky, “Close” by Lucas Dont and “Tchaikovsky’s Wife” by Kirill Serebrennikov.

What else will this law change?
