The Hymns of Muscovy


The Hymns of Muscovy
Directed by Dimitri Venkov, 2018, Russia, 15′

 

The film is a trip to the planet Muscovy, which is an upside down space twin of the city of Moscow, accompanied by the Hymnic Variations on the Soviet anthem by the composer Alexander Manotskov, originally written in 1943. Manotskov used an early recording of the anthem as source material to create three electronic variations each corresponding to an architectural style.
