    • Synopsis
    • 1991, the Soviet Union disappears. As the country collapses, DJs turn to electronic music and LSD and send yesterday’s Komsomols in a new mental cosmos. The heart of the capital beats at 180 beats. That was my city, my youth, the experience of my 20 years old.
      Ivan Salmaksov, a figure of the rave movement, disappeared in 1998. Following his footsteps, gathering pieces of experiences, testimonies, archives and memories, I try and reconstruct these vertiginous times. Where is Ivan? Where are those wild emotions, this extreme thrill, our weird romanticism? Where has our youth gone?
