You are invited to watch this rare example of a Russian indie film, a brilliantly visual and dangerous film soon to invade cinemas…
GENERATION P, adapted from the internationally-lauded bestseller by Victor Pelevin, is a rude and funny dispatch about Moscow, ground zero to the money, terror, and image-driven paradigm which has replaced the Cold War.
The story depicts the rise of Babylen Tatarsky through Russia’s nascent advertising business, and his parallel initiation into the ancient cult of Ishtar, queen of all that glitters in the film’s hallucinogenic brave new world. We also meet Che Guevara, a fiery dragon with bad news about TV, and a chauffeur with a marked resemblance to Putin, who is elected president.
Generation P is a riddle, a farce, a romance about the ecstasy of disintegration, and an obscene joke about the end of the world.
