How to talk about Russian history? Without sounding didactical, condemning, propagandist or nostalgically. Once written, the story is being objectified, confirming as fact and document. If the fact is neglected, people voices, for whom recent Soviet past has become a long story and already turned into a myth, would be heard. This video is such myth written by middle school students in which Russian society seems to has been living for seventy years, and for which modernity is feeling new thirst and nostalgia.
