Meet Gosha Rubchinskiy’s Russian youth

A documentary about three young men who responded to the designer’s online open casting call

Apart glimpses into the lives of Andrey, Ivan and Kirill, three young men from different parts of Russia, united by the casting call for Gosha Rubchinskiy’s autumn/winter show in January 2017.

As the show draws nearer, they reflect on their surroundings – the southern town of Krasnodar; Divnogorsk, a Siberian town on the great Yenisei River; and the host city of Kaliningrad, seen by Kirill from a new perspective. They share their thoughts, eventually finding themselves backstage at the fashion show, surrounded by others who have made similar journeys.

This documentary short continues the collaboration between cultural site InRussia and Gosha Rubchinskiy, which began with a printed guidebook to Kaliningrad. The guidebook, presented at the designer's show, marked the beginning of InRussia's publishing activity.
