Eduard Yakovlevich Volodarsky (Russian: Эдуа́рд Я́ковлевич Волода́рский; February 3, 1941 – October 8, 2012) was a Russian screenwriter who penned such classic Russian films as At Home Among Strangers in 1974, which was his first hit, and My Friend Ivan Lapshin in 1984.[1] Volodarsky's willingness to deviate from official Soviet propaganda accounts of war, such as those of World War II, led to censorship from Soviet authorities.[1] For example, Trial of the Road, which was filmed in 1971 was not released until 1986 during Perestroika.[1] Likewise, Soviet film censors refused to release My Friend Ivan Lapshin until several years after it was finished in the early 1980s.[1]

Volodarsky was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, U.S.S.R., in 1941.[1] He died in Russia on October 8, 2012, at the age of 71 and was survived by his wife, Farida A. Volodarskaya.[1]
