Trailer: Leto (The Summer)

Posted on May 10, 2019 at 6:44 am

“Leto” is set in Leningrad’s underground rock scene in the early 1980’s. It premiered at Cannes, where it won the soundtrack award, and it features music from Kino and other Russian bands as well as  T-Rex, David Bowie and The Velvet Underground. In the Village Voice, critic Bilge Ebiri called it  an “explosive pop musical” and said “with its languid, freewheeling narrative, its constant blurring of fantasy and reality, its mixing of Soviet garage rock with better-known pieces from around the world, Summer proves… an ode to a world without boundaries. “
