Avant-garde and politically persecuted Russian director, Kirill Serebrennikov, has made a glowing black and white tribute to the Sovietsummer (“leto”) of rock and roll amid the 1980s formation of bands like Kino and Zoopark. This musical biopic collides a romantic ode to summer against a relevant backdrop of censorship, contemporary musical protest in Russia, and the important influence of American and British rock music in countercultural youth movements behind the Iron Curtain.
