Projections: Chto Delat: Border Musical
Russian collective Chto Delat (What is to be done?) makes deftly critical and humorous projects that merge political theory, art, and activism. Border Musical tells the story of the Russian Tanja as she abandons everything she knows to live with her son and new husband Ola in Norway. A recurring cast of dramatic, comical and performative characters help Ola and Tanja as they negotiate their at times significant cultural differences to live an acceptable Norwegian life. (2013, 49 min.)
