The UK’s leading documentary film festival will for the first time include a special EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture) focus showcasing documentaries from EU countries.
Austrian director Dominik Sprityendorfer presents Elektro Moskva with co-director Elena Tikhonova. ELEKTRO MOSKVA (Electro Moscow) is an essayistic documentary about the Soviet electronic age and its legacy. The story begins with the inventor of the world’s first electronic instrument, Leon Theremin, unveiling the KGB’s large collection of electronic devices, some of which were musical. The story of the Soviet synthesizers is an allegory of everyday life under the Soviet system: nothing works, but you have to make the best of it. An electronic fairy tale about the inventive spirit of the free mind inside the iron curtain- and beyond.
