Watch a world champion chess player, now journalist, unravel the complexities of Russia’s cultural and geopolitical landscape. In part one of this event, Garry Kasparov will offer his personal spin on the state of contemporary Russian politics and culture. After a brief intermission, a panel of Russian experts - from critics to novelists - will comment on Kasparov's talk and engage in a debate about where this mammoth country is headed.
