Sergei SOLOVYOV (1944, Russia) is a Russian director, writer, producer and actor. He studied cinema at the all-Soviet state Institute of Cinematography, and began his career in Leningrad TV and Mosfilm studio. He won the Silver Bear for Best Director at the 25th Berlin International Film Festival with his film One Hundred Days After Childhood (1975). The Soviet crime film Assa (1987) became a cult classic in the Soviet Union, bringing underground music to the mainstream. ‘Khochu Peremen’, the song played in the final scene of the film by Viktor Tsoi, singer of the Soviet-era rock band Kino, became the anthem of the protestors in Belarus in 2020, thirty years after Tsoi died. In 2000, Solovyov was a member of the jury at the 22nd Moscow International Film Festival.
