Plot synopsis
August 1991. The fascinating VHS tapes of the rehearsals of an independent play set up by a troupe of young Russians during some days of that month. Genre, the show, staged a state of things with a punk vibe, anti-imperialist sentiment, half a dozen firearms pointing every which way, and an iconoclastic spirit. Meanwhile, the radio broadcasts the beginnings of a radical transformation in the Soviet Union, which the group follows with apprehension. General state of alert — they say, in loco, on the images — a coup is in full swing. The new work of Klim Kozinsky represents the incredible penetration into August days. How to remain yourself in times of fundamental changes? How to preserve independence and not to please the hard work of History itself? The option proposed by the director is an intellectual shelter, in no case an escapism, but a paradoxical strategy of active non-participation.
