Under Siege



I am many things (student, weirdo, shopaholic, insomniac, awkwardly lanky) but a history buff is certainly not one of them. I knew absolutely nothing of the Siege of Leningrad before going to Russia and visiting a museum dedicated to it. In this haunting but rather incredible film, artist Sergey Larenkov juxtaposes modern day St Petersburg against what was then called Leningrad during the Siege.
(If, like me five days ago, you knew nothing about this, check out the wiki page here)
