Hello Chuck and all on the listserv,
 
I am sorry for the delayed response on this one but as it seems that
there have been no (on list) replies to the query (perhaps it was lost
in the flurry of interesting topics flying about lately), I figure that
it is better late than never!
 
Icarus Films has many films meeting your criteria available now. They
are all on the Russia Subject Page of our website
(http://www.icarusfilms.com/subjects/russia.html) but here are a few
that I felt more specifically addressed your topics:
 
 
Energy <http://www.icarusfilms.com/new2007/ener.html> War (2007)
In a world in which the U.S. and Europe are addicted to oil and gas, and
those increasingly scarce resources are controlled by authoritarian
regimes, ENERGY WAR reveals precisely how the economic importance of
fossil fuels affects international politics and becomes a powerful tool
of foreign policy and how oil was used as a political weapon in the
struggle between an economically revitalized Russia and its former
Soviet Republic.
 
Revue <http://www.icarusfilms.com/new2008/revu.html> (2008)
Sergei Loznitsa has scoured the Russian film archives for REVUE,
selecting excerpts from newsreels, propaganda films, TV shows and
feature films that present an evocative portrait of Soviet life during
the 1950s and 1960s.
 
Knorosov <http://www.icarusfilms.com/new2001/knor.html> (2000)
KNOROSOV: THE DECIPHERMENT OF THE MAYAN SCRIPT traces the history of the
ancient Mayan codices since their discovery, and relates the fantastic
story of Yuri Knorosov and his accomplishment, perhaps the greatest
archaeological achievement since the translation of the Rosetta Stone.
 
Forever <http://www.icarusfilms.com/new2007/lenin.html> Lenin (2005)
Why, and how, was Lenin mummified in 1924? And how, and why, is he still
on display in Red Square today?
 
Deadly <http://www.icarusfilms.com/new2004/enem.html> Enemies (2003)
Like the Atomic Bomb, germ warfare grew out the military labs of World
War II. The US and Soviets both recruited germ warfare scientist from
Japan and Germany just as they had with atomic scientists. DEADLY
ENEMIES tells the story of scientists on both sides of the Cold War
divide through the first hand accounts of those who were there.

Subject: [Videolib] Russian Videos: 2000 - present
 
I'm looking for contemporary Russian videos in English, or with English
subtitles; topics can include; geopolitics, culture, women writers or
literature in general, science...
 
VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of
issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic
control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in
libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve
as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel
of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video
producers and distributors.
