SYNOPSIS

The video is a humoristic comparison of two metropolises – New York and Moscow, where the life in the age of globalization is close to identical. Authors juxtapose similar scenes on two different channels. Each channel shows an urban silhouette with skyscrapers, triumphal arches and monuments of one of both cities. Scenes are followed by a lively music and a narration by a voice speaking English with a Russian accent reading highly ironical quotations from Little golden America, a work by humorists Ilya Ilf and Yevgeniy Petrov sent to the USA in 1936 by Stalin to make a presentation about why soviet society is superior to American. Quotations about American lifestyle, fast food culture, unintelligent commercials and stuck-up little towns are still incredibly exact, but unfortunately the video artists show, that today they are true for post transitional Russia as well. Moscow lives with the same tempo, everyone jogs, the city is full of noise, sirens, fast food and poverty.
