The Hymns of Muscovy

Year: 2018

Director: Dimitri Venkov

Country: Russia

Duration: 15 minutes

To tell a history though architecture and music, the film matches the styles of Moscow’s XX and XXI centuries buildings with electronic variations of the Soviet and Russian national anthem. The juxtaposition captures an aesthetic evolution driven by the evolution of ideology.
