ELECTRSFSR, experimental audio film
2022

A whole generation of Soviet scientists designed and built the technology of the future. They dreamed of technologies that would change the world. Ideology has created these aspirations, competing with the West in the arms race for more than half a century.

Today, these scientific institutes are concrete ruins filled with old equipment. Once secret closed enterprises are now available for anyone to visit.

Dreams of the future have left these places forever. But the silence of these walls will tell the casual visitor about hopes, ideology and the Cold War much more than the pages of textbooks.
