Soviet Union | 1963 | dir. Gerbert Rappaport, with Olga Zabotkina, Vladimir Vasilyev, Marina Khotuntseva

Directed by Herbert Rappaport and based on Dmitri Shostakovich’s operetta, Cheryomushki is a satirical take on the now infamous housing projects built under Nikita Krushchev. Aesthetically, the bright colour scale exemplifies the hopes of those who are to be rehomed in the Cheryomushki district and is ironically accentuated by the musical backdrop.
