Nikolay Georgievich Rasheyev (Russian: Рашéев Николáй Геóргиевич; born April 8, 1935) is a Soviet and Ukrainian film director and screenwriter.



Rasheyev was born in Kiev, Ukraine. His father was a Bulgarian political émigré, who was arrested in 1937. He graduated from the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute in 1957 and enrolled in Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography, from which he was expelled during the campaign against Boris Pasternak's novel Dr. Zhivago. Pasternak was persecuted by the Soviet government until his death and was forced to decline the Nobel Prize. Nikolay Rasheyev, like many of his contemporaries, was expelled from the university after being accused of being "a spiritual brother of Pasternak". He finished his studies at Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography by correspondence. In 1966 he completed advanced coursework in screenwriting and directing.

After being expelled from the Gerasimov Institute, he made use of his earlier engineering education, working in various jobs in northern and eastern Russia, in Tuva, Sakhalin and Chukotka.

In 1964, he graduated from Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography (scriptwriting faculty) and in 1966, the Higher Courses of Scriptwriters and directors.

He worked as an assistant director for TV stations in Chişinău and Kiev and as a director for Perm television and the Moldova-Film studios. He became a director in Dovzhenko Film Studios in 1971. Among his most popular works are Bumbarash and Kings and Cabbage, an adaptation of O. Henry's book of the same name.
