moscow: soviet advertising festival

if you're in moscow, you shouldn't miss the soviet advertising festival, kicking off today [on until sep 6] at the vinzavod complex. there'll be several screening sessions of propaganda-infused advertising reels, documentaries and feature films made before 1992, giving an insight in both the social and political dynamics of the old soviet union. we figure that even if you don't speak russian, it'll be most interesting as the images speak for themselves. location: 4-ya syromyatnicheskiy pereulok 1 [basmanniy].
