Yeltsin Center


The Boris Yeltsin Presidential Center is a museum and event space that brings the first democratically elected president of Russia’s history to life. Doors to the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Center opened on November 26, 2015 in Yekaterinburg, Russia. The opening reception included political leaders from around the world, prominent artists, and public figures – several of whom called it “the coolest museum in Russia.”

The Persona Films team traveled the globe to shoot 133 exclusive interviews, licensed footage from over 100 archival sources, and produced 163 media and interactive programs. We spent almost three years working on all media design and film production for this historic project. Museum guests are presented with stories told through documentary narratives, immersive installations, and interactive experiential programs. Exhibiting a rare collection of media, the BYPC will educate and entertain for years to come.
