Hosted by ,  • 

Just before winning the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film, Andrey Zvyagintsev and Alexander Rodnyansky learned their movie Leviathan had leaked online in Russia. At first the filmmakers were furious, but then they realized their movie was having a big social impact at home. Rodnyansky and Zvyagintsev tell us why their film is receiving praise from many audiences, but scorn from Russian officials.
