Director Natalia Alfutova

Production year 2011

Length 30min.

Country Russia


Over the last 15 years entire blocks of historical buildings and dozens of priceless monuments dating between the 17th and 20th Centuries have been destroyed in Moscow. In the centre of Moscow land is very valuable, more valuable than the architectural monuments standing on that land. That’s why any mansion, old house or historical monument getting in the way of selling the land is destroyed using any means possible. Even special rats are released into evacuated buildings which will turn the structure of any solid, safe building into dust within two weeks threatening the safety of passers by. The film is about a small group of young people who try with all their might to oppose the cruel destruction of their city.
