"I felt insulted as Georgian"- ballet dancer Nikoloz Tsiskaridze about "The Death of Stalin"
Famous ballet dancer Nikoloz Tsiskaridze could not help himself and got very emotional when being asked about the movie "The Death of Stalin." Tsiskaridze says, that as Georgian he got very insulted by the movie and added that the script of the movie was monstrous.

"If the Russian Federation had filmed a movie about George Washington or Lincoln, believe me, the movie would not be shown at any American cinema."- Tsiskaridze says.

While talking about t
he movie "The Death of Stalin", he also brought an example from his career. In order not to insult African Americans, special requirements were made by Americans while performing the ballet "The Pharaoh's Daughter."

"Why can a Georgian be insulted and not African American? If African Americans can defend their nation, why can't Georgians say that they do not want their nation to be insulted?"

The Death of Stalin is a 2017 British satirical black comedy film written and directed by Armando Iannucci and co-written by David Schneider, Ian Martin, and Peter Fellows. Based on the French graphic novel La Mort de Staline, the film depicts the power struggle following the death of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin in 1953.

In 2018 Russia’s culture ministry has withdrawn permission for the release of Armando Iannucci’s black comedy The Death of Stalin after officials and top arts figures labeled the movie offensive and extremist.
