2004/2005, 35 min, Music Documentary

"Good Bye, Leningrad!" follows 5 musicians from the St. Petersburg based band Pudra. Interplecting images from their daily routines the musicians describe their ties to St. Petersburg and how Pudra was founded. While thus essentially a band portrait the movie at the same time offers a good glimpse into the life of an upcoming St. Petersburg based rock band: most of the musicians moved to the city, they are not full time musicians but have day jobs and they rehearse in the basement of a residential building. ...the movie is definitively recommendable for anybody interested in Post-Soviet popular music! (David-Emil Wickström)
