Russia: Real-life Dima

by Alex Noone 663 views

Russia’s Dima Bilan has released the third in a series of films about his life on the road.

The fly-on-the-wall documentaries, the first of which came out towards the end of last year, follow the singer as he tours Russia and more recently, as he works on his new album, Dotyanis.

Each film is made up of real footage of the star. Nothing in the film has been staged, or taken in more than one shot. (You get) the truth and nothing more, Dima said of the project. The video mixes dreams, thoughts, speech, bursts of emotion and honest answers to (the fans’) questions. It’s interesting.

The documentaries can be seen on Dima’s website.

Fans can also log onto Dima’s website every day from tomorrow (21 June) at 18.00hrs Moscow-time for an exclusive video to celebrate the release of Dotyanis at the end of May.

Dima Bilan first represented Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006 where he finished in second place with the song, Never let you go. He won the competition two years later in 2008 with Believe but missed out on the opportunity to represent his country in the 2012 contest. He and Yulia Volkova, who had herself represented Russia at the 2003 contest as part of t.A.T.u, came second in the 2012 Russian selection process to Buranovskiye Babushki.

Dotyanis is Dima Bilan’s eighth  album.
