REPOST - Vice Guide to Film: Russian Parallel Cinema

VICE magazine - hipsta's paradise?
As an act of prepping myself up for Russia as much as possible I started trawling the net for inspiring Russian stuff. As usual, VBS TV (the video supplement to the ever-hip "VICE magazine") proved a brilliant rescource for wacky, travel documentary-exploitation-flicks.

The programme 'The VICE guide to' is a treasure chest of gems and in their film series I stumbled upon this, NOT FOR THE FAINTHEARTED OR EASILY SHOCKED but really interesting nonetheless...

"The VICE guide to Russian Paralell Cinema"

For fans of film, Soviet Kitch and surrealism, VICE co-founder Shane Smith goes to Russia in search of the originators of one of the world's most extreme and crazy film styles...


(also check out the VICE guide to travel - the North Korea episode is fascinating!)
