The teaser looks weird, and Vladimir Putin looks deceptively real. Director Patrick Vega brings “Putin” to cinemas this fall, which jumps between reality and fiction through the life of the Russian president.

no time? Blue News sums it up for you

  • Polish director Patrick Vega worked extensively with deepfake technology for the first time in his work “Putin.”
  • The face of a well-known person is usually placed on the actor's body.
  • The trailer shows the Russian head of state wearing diapers and appearing to be traumatized.

Vladimir Putin's face has been everywhere since the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As of September 26, he can no longer be seen not only in the news, but also in cinema – not in a documentary, but in a dark “biography”, presented by Polish director Patrik Vega like a gangster saga.

Real and fictional events seem to mingle. Thanks to CGI and deepfake technology, the actor portraying Putin in the film of the same name looks very similar to the Russian dictator, as the now-released trailer proves.

“Putin” is heralded as the world's first to successfully apply deepfake technology to a feature film, and it is no less provocative toward the Kremlin.

Crouching helplessly on the ground

It will be shown in cinemas in some European countries in the fall. Patrick Vega, one of Poland's most popular but also controversial directors, took over as director. Although his films have repeatedly broken audience records in Poland, critics often criticize him for the brutality and vulgarity of his works.

The trailer for “Putin” is also not for the faint of heart. On the one hand, the head of the Kremlin appears helpless, kneeling on the floor in a full diaper. He then appears as an unscrupulous and brutal politician as well as an ordinary person. The images indicate that the film will also contain elements of psychological thriller. In addition to Putin, former US President Bill Clinton and Chechen ruler Ramzan Kadyrov, among others, can be seen.
