Cold Fear: Gay Life in Russia

Cold Fear: Gay Life in Russia

Directed by Ben Steele

It is thought only one per cent of gay people dare to live completely openly in Russia. This film gained unique access to the vigilante gangs that target gay men and women. Gay men and women in Russia say new legislation and intolerance in Russia has led to a 'hunting season' and they are the hunted. The film treats all contributors with dignity and refuses to offer a simplistic solution to complex social tensions.
