Russia v Georgia - The Movie

Yep, a museum in honor of the wonderful Russian victory over Georgia wasn't enough. Now there's a "fictional" movie based on the events of last August.

According to the FP blog, the story of "Olympus Inferno" is fiction but the politics are pretty clear:

The fictional account tells of a U.S.-based entomologist and a female Russian journalist who unintentionally capture evidence that Georgia started the conflict using a special camera night lens as they attempt to film rare night butterflies.

The two face obstacles as they try to get through the frontlines of advancing Georgian forces and back to South Ossetia's capital, Tskhinvali with proof of who started the war.

Check out the trailer here.

Not gonna lie to you. I want to see it.

You know, production value has really gone up since Battleship Potemkin.

It won't work in actual fact, that is exactly what I suppose.
