How to talk about the city you live in? How to look at it with the eyes of a stranger? How to fall in love with it all over again? In rediscovering Moscow, we rediscovered ourselves...
Sunset on the journey to Moscow
We were contacted by friends and begged by our parents, both the audience and our subscribers asked and insisted... Thye all raised the same question, ”When are you going to film in Moscow?” We hesitated, because, actually, it was very scary to talk about the city you’ve lived in for so many years - it is a huge responsibility. There is no room for mistakes here; you can’t forget something hoping no one will notice. In the capital there is no place for jokes. The most difficult part wasn’t finding a decent film crew, or coming up with a plan of action, or making a list of interesting places. The most difficult thing was to see the familiar landscape in a new light, look at from a different perspective, which is usually only seen to foreigners and tourists. And the magic of Moscow did not disappoint us, and everything turned out great: surprising, unconsciously inspiring and spontaneous..
Leaders and parades, victory and oblivion, pioneer ties and flags, workers, and farm girl, dreams of space... We are tearing off all the masks of our city, as the luring red stars, flash in the transparent blue sky.
