Documentary film ,,Vladimir Makanin. The price of a personal voice " is dedicated to the biography and work of the Russian writer Vladimir Makanin, who was and remains the most non-opportunistic writer. Neither in the Soviet period of his work, nor in modern times, this author does not adjust to the political moment and does not write on the anger of the day. Although his characters are always modern, they live here and now: and it does not matter whether his hero works as an engineer in the "mailbox" of the 70s, makes furniture to order in the 80s, participates in military operations in Chechnya, or calls himself a writer from the underground of the 90s, Makanin is primarily interested in his inner world and his existential drama. This is why Makanin always gives an accurate portrait of time.
