‘MOSCOW LIGHTS’ (Archives)

Film is deeply rooted in the local context of Kaliningrad history. As a part of traditional ‘promo’ I’ve made a series of prints with archival images from the 1970s–1980s, as well as photos from the film sets.

On the photo: (1) Exhibition of Leningrad avangard artists in the Kaliningrad Art Gallery, 1989. (2) House of Soviets, 1981. (3) New pharmacy on the Novopregolskaya emb., 1979.

In film publishing house is located inside the ‘House of trade unions’. Once beautiful modernist building with an open yard inside, beloved by the late 80s young scaters, today is fenced and ‘renovated’, gone is the open ground floor.

‘Moscow Lights’ is the name of a restaurant on Moscow Avenue.

All actors in film are from the Kaliningrad Drama Theater. On the photo: (1) Tatyana Rogacheva plays the role of Olga Zilova, director of the publishing house. It’s her movie debut.
