An urban symphony comprising a visual collage of the Estonian capital city. With an emphasis on rhythm, it sets into motion a stream of compositions depicting various buildings and corners of the city. Its primary focus, however, is on the human element as a bearer of action and vitality, capturing the period of political thaw, carefree fun, and the joy of life.


Andrei Dobrovolski (1936), a director and photographer of Russian origin, experiments with photographic film as part of the photographic group Stodom.
