23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Using dynamic editing of a collage of black and white photos and a multi-layered soundtrack, the first photographic film in the history of Latvian cinema offers a portrait of Moscow in the mid-1960s. Under the symbols of power, hanging threateningly over the streets of the city, everyday life flows by, carefree and triumphant.
Leading Latvian photographer Gunārs Binde (1933) made a total of three photographic films: Hello, Moscow! (1966), Hands (1967), and Salute (1975). Within them one can find harmony between the visible world and one’s inner self.
