Electro Moscow

(Electro Moscow) Director: Elene Tikhonova, Dominik Spritzendorfer, A, 2013, Russian version / English subtitles, 89 min

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 huge pile of fascinating devices, some of which were musical. They all came into existence as by-products of the rampant defense industry. Nowadays, those aged and abandoned ‘musical coffins’, as solidly made as a Kalashnikov, are being recycled and reinterpreted by the post-Soviet generations of musicians, sound collectors and circuit benders. The story of the Soviet synthesizers is an allegory to the everyday life under the Soviet system: nothing works, but you have to make the best out of it. It’s an electronic fairy tale about the inventive spirit of the free mind inside the iron curtain- and beyond.

The screening is held in partnership with the Austrian Cultural Forum Prague.
