The name of Vladimir Ovchinnikov has become widely known in Russia over the last decade - particularly this period of time the street artist has lived in a town that seemed to bewitch him. The town of Borovsk is a strange place, which has been an island of memory for all innocent victims since the XIV century. Boyarynya Morozova died here, Archpriest Avvakum was also imprisoned here and numerous victims of political repression were shot here. Here Ovchinnikov suddenly began to paint on the walls of houses - contrary to the indignation of the authorities: the "naive" graffiti artist is not 19, but 80 years old.
Real passions began to flare up in the town in 2015, when Vladimir Ovchinnikov painted on one of the fences his first "memorial to the victims of political repressions"…

Relevant topics, smart movies, charismatic lecturers, intelligent audience, memorable debate. Sophisticated concerts in venerable buildings, exhilarating musical happenings resounding in the Carpathian nights atmosphere, exhibitions, book stands.
The Histories and Film Festival in Rasnov (FFIR) started in 2009. It emerged from the desire of bringing to public debate those topics with an impact able to overcome the transience of the moment.
This way, a rather unique event for the Romanian cultural market was born! An event able to raise thoughts and stir passions, to provide information and generate emotions, to rask questions and search for answers.
