The creator of the Telegram encrypted messaging application, Russian-born Pavel Durov, has been featured in a debut film at the Moscow Film Festival.
Durov, 36, has been dubbed by the media as “Russian Mark Zuckerberg” for founding the social networking platform VKontakte, the Russian equivalent of Facebook, and later Telegram, the encrypted messaging app, reported The Moscow Times.
The film, which paints a picture of an arrogant but brilliant entrepreneur, is fascinating material for anyone interested in how social media and messaging platforms have changed the way people communicate and the visionary who made it happen.
Durov is revered in resistance circles for the Telegram app’s security. However, some concerns have been raised he may be sharing some information with Russian authorities, who have ceased to harass him, hence the speculation he is cooperating.
The film can be streamed with English subtitles on Russian movie-streaming platform KION.
