The Hymns of Muscovy

Gimny Moskovii | Гимны Московии

Directed by Dimitri Venkov
Russia, 2018
Short, Documentary


To tell a history through architecture and music, the film matches the styles of Moscow’s 20th- and 21st-century buildings with electronic variations of the Soviet and Russian national anthem. The juxtaposition captures an aesthetic evolution driven by the evolution of ideology.
