It was important for me raise awareness to the issues and hurdles many women face every day, not only in Russia, but worldwide.

A Girl & the City, a documentary from entrepreneur and philanthropist Alina Reyzelman, reveals the most current problems and challenges that women face in today’s society. The film tracks the lives of three Russian women to illustrate the various aspects of female nature and the adversities they endure.

The film takes place in Moscow, Russia, and follows the lives of three individual women from different social classes of society. Through their experiences and commentary, the documentary reveals the deep rooted issues plaguing their society, such as gender discrimination, financial support of socially unprotected members of society, and problems of both working and single mothers.

Each woman featured in the film expresses her own fears, ambitions and capabilities that she must overcome and conquer. These characters discuss problems and issues that are relative to their situations yet still relatable to women worldwide. In parallel to the stories of these women, other successful women and businessmen analyze these issues and provide insight based on their knowledge and experience.

“A Girl & the City is an educational documentary that portrays various aspects of modern life and allows us to get an insight into the most pressing issues of society,” said Reyzelman, the producer, director and writer of the documentary. “It was important for me raise awareness to the issues and hurdles many women face every day, not only in Russia, but worldwide.”

A Girl & the City is set to be released later this year with English subtitles and will be available in the United States through iTunes and Netflix.
