How did television begin? From an early age, Vladimir Zworykin was captivated by electrical devices, and as a student, he pioneered an early version of television. Following the communist revolution in Russia, Zworykin was compelled to leave his homeland, yet he persisted with his research. He became renowned as a leading American inventor and the father of television. Likewise, Vladimir Yourkevitch, another pioneering engineer, faced a similar fate. His innovative approach transformed the design of transatlantic liners. Vladimir was responsible for the launch of the Normandie—the largest liner of its time.

Beyond inventors, exceptional artists who reshaped the global film industry also began their careers in the Russian Empire. It’s a little-known fact that Hollywood may never have existed if two boys from the provincial Russian town of Rybinsk hadn’t ventured to New York in 1893. The documentary sheds light on the stories of these trailblazers and their profound impact on a global scale. Watch the new documentary to discover the journeys of these remarkable emigrants who truly found their calling.
