The Event

Synopsis

In August 1991, a failed coup d’état attempt in Moscow (known as Putsch) signalled the fall of the Soviet Union. Thousands of people poured into the streets of Leningrad to be part of the event which was supposed to change their destiny. Sergei LOZNITSA revisits the dramatic moments of August 1991 and casts an eye on the event hailed worldwide as the birth of ‘Russian democracy’.
