Natalya Kadyrova’s new film follows young cadets on their first voyage aboard the Kruzenshtern, a 1926 sailing ship in the Baltic State Academy's Fishing Fleet.

In Rwanda – where up to a million people died in 1994 in a hundred days of genocide – women have become a significant workforce rebuilding the devastated country. They have taken on traditional men’s jobs, leading roles in the government and challenged cultural expectations. RTD spoke to Rwandan women about gender equality and women’s empowerment in their country.
RTD’s Aleksey Brazhnikov sets out to ask ordinary Americans about what they think of Russia and its people. He talks to people on the street, researchers and music lovers to see whether deteriorating relations between the two governments can affect public opinion.
