Rossosh... Ragtime (0+)

Russia, 2006, colour, 52 min.
Director: Pulad Akhmatov
The life in the small town Rossosh is the same as in the rest of Russia. The citizens of Rossosh struggle for survival, enjoy every earned rouble, complain about everyday burdens. Sometimes they find exotic ways to earn extra money -combining, for example, baking and selling pies at the local station during the day with striptease dancing in a local nightclub. But if you look closely, as the author of «Ragtime» does, it seems that the local inhabitants are capable of stopping the everyday routine to concentrate on more essential issues.

Attention! All events of the festival times are given in Perm time (GMT+5)
