Film on Nicholas II's Affair with Ballerina Might be Banned

Alexei Uchitel’s historical drama Matilda about the affair of Tsar Nicholas II with the imperial theater ballerina Matilda Cshesinscaya might be banned from world distribution.

      The film creators Vladimir Vinokur and Alexei Uchitel signed a contract with David Weisman for joint production of the historical drama three years ago. One of the contract items specified that in case if the Russian party gets to work on the project without notifying the American partner about it the latter would be entitled to a large compensation.

      Now David Weisman files a lawsuit with the requirement to pay him the due amount, and if the contract terms are violated by the Russian party, he intends to outbluster the prohibition of Matilda in world film distribution and at the international film festivals.

      So far Matilda film creators of have not reacted to the American’s claim in any way.
