Video of the Week XXVI: Russian Winter Series I

The first of a short four part eclectic selection of Russian art, architecture and culture. Where else to begin than with the iconic Tatlin and Avant-gardisms. A bit of an education, revision, nostalgia and the occasionally mad or fantastic imagery – wait ’til you see the sci films!!
