THE NAKED OF SAINT PETERSBURG
A film by Ada Bligaard Søby
It is winter in St Petersburg, Russia, and the streets of the former capital are teeming. Half naked sunbathers stand in the snow; fledgling dancers watched by throngs of teens are an explosion of underground fashion; a therapist who cannot afford an office sees clients in his car; immigrant street cleaners wander estates in orange vests, hoping they won't be mistaken for terrorists. St Petersburg makes do with what it has.
