“I heard destiny calling… I was going to be a cheesemaker.” When Oleg Sirota discovered his native Russia was banning all Western cheese imports, he quit his IT job in Moscow, sold his house and cars, took out a $100k loan and set about building a cheese factory in the snowy wilderness. “Russian Parmesan” was born. The film was originally released on NOWNESS (30/6/2016). Full article: https://www.nowness.com/series/stranger- than-fiction/war-and-cheese-oleg-sirota- ben-garfield www.bengarfield.com
