Irina Souch explores contemporary popular film and television representations of Russian cultural identity after the demise of the Soviet Union in 1991. Through detailed analyses of a number of films and television series she shows how identity narratives come into being through the invocation of existing popular cultural tropes, such as the myths of patriarchal authority and brotherhood, the idyll of the countryside community and, especially, the family metaphor.
