Description - Riot Days by Maria Alyokhina

We hit upon the idea of making a movie about the Revolution. A feature film that would be shown in all the movie theaters. The short video about the frozen chicken up the cunt was all well and good, but it wasn't for a mass audience. Art for the masses means Hollywood. Calling people to revolution requires a big screen. We visited at least twenty studios over the course of a week- identical offices; blinding, snow-white smiles. We had no problem getting appointments, because they were writing about us in all the newspapers."We want to make a movie about revolution.""Which revolution might that be?""The Russian revolution.""Which one do you mean? The 1917 Revolution?""No! The one that's happening now.""But you don't have any revolution now.""Oh, really?"
