Description:
Russian director Kirill Serebrennikov recreates the atmosphere of the rebellious rock scene in the mid-1980s Soviet Union.
Leningrad, one summer in the early eighties, just before the introduction of the perestroika policy.

Smuggling LPs by Lou Reed and David Bowie, the underground rock scene is throbbing. Mike and his beautiful wife Natasha meet young Viktor who is eager to make a name for himself. This encounter will change Viktor's life forever. Together, they will change the destiny of rock'n'roll in the Soviet Union, build Viktor's legend and make him immortal.

"Summer is a rock'n'roll story set in 1980s Soviet Leningrad. It is a love triangle of three very different individuals with a backdrop featuring a very strange, sometimes exotic, Soviet Union. All of this in an environment that was very hostile to both rock'n'roll and Western culture, but that nonetheless ended up being the nesting ground for a new wave of Russian rock. Our story deals with the faith necessary to overcome this social context, and the heroes' carefree attitude in the face of inherited oppression. /.../ It is a story of the last summer before perestroika, before the utter transformation of their environment into contemporary Russia." (Kirill Serebrennikov)
