F@ck This Job

Documentary


 

Follows Natasha Sindeyeva, the founder of Russia's only independent broadcaster on her 10-year odyssey of covering news stories ignored by the State-sanctioned services.

"F@ck This Job" traces the year-to-year operations of the TV news channel which dubbed itself 'the optimistic channel'. Dozhd was envisioned as the voice of a new era before encountering the oppression and corruption seeded in the emerging political landscape. Political hackles rise as we watch, it's stirring to witness the determination of journalists fighting for the right to report as independent media. The struggle is echoed in the soundtrack, much of which is subtitled as 'mournful music'. Offputin.
