Soviet film directors have one advantage over Westerners: the State takes care of the budget. But in return the State expects firm control over all production.

Dinara Asanova, one of the few female directors of Soviet features, knows how to bend the rules -- departing from the approved script and changing characters and locations, with controversial results.
