Time to Break the Ice

MONDAY 14th JANUARY 2019, 6:30PM

Gift of Life requests the pleasure of your company at the charity readings of the new book TIME TO BREAK THE ICE by Chulpan Khamatova & Katerina Gordeeva.


Two close friends, actress Chulpan Khamatova and journalist Katerina Gordeeva, in conversation about work, art, theatre, television of the nineties, friendship and charity. They will recall how the Podari Zhizn foundation was established and their personal routes to what has become their calling – supporting the charity and children in its care. They metaphorically see it as breaking everlasting ice in Russia.

The conversation will be moderated by famous Russian journalist Mikhail Zygar.
