DINARA DRUKAROVA / JELENA DIMITRIEVA DOCTOROW

Dinara started her film career at a very early age. She made her debut in the 1989 film ’It Was Near Sea’. But it was her second film ’Don't Move, Die and Rise Again!’ which first saw her receiving attention, when the film won the Golden Camera at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival.

One of her few Russian films during the latter half of the 1990s was the controversial 1998 cult film ’Of Freaks and Men’ in which she played the female lead role of Lisa. This performance saw her nominated in the category of "Best European Actress" at the 1998 European Film Awards. She was subsequently interviewed in a number of prominent French magazines including Elle, Premiere, and Vogue. 

Dinara featured the key part in the 2003 film ’Since Otar Left’. The film received a wide art-house release in several countries, winning the Critics Week Grand Prize at Cannes, and substantially increased Drukarova's profile internationally. 

She lives in a houseboat on the Seine with her husband and kids.
