A documentary by Igor Morozov about recording jazz, migrant songs and underground artists on X-rays in the 1940–1960s’ Soviet Union.
In the mid-twentieth century USSR, x-rays turned out to be an excellent medium for recording prohibited music, such as jazz, migrant, and gypsy songs, and or course, rock and roll. Director Igor Morozov has devoted his film to the history of this underground layer of Russian culture, which has made it possible to preserve a lot of music banned by the authorities at the time.
Director Igor Morozov. Russia, 2007. 39 minutes.
