A pair of clips from Kirill Serebrennikov's 1980s set musical.


Kirill Serebrennikov's rock musical Leto tells the story of musician Viktor Tsoi (Teo Yoo), who struggles to bring rock to Soviet era Leningrad amid state censorship while entering into a love triangle with fellow rocker Mike Naumenko (Roman Bilyk) and his girlfriend Natalia (Irina Starshenbaum).

Leto features unique renditions of a host of rock staples to tell a charming story of defiance through art. You can read our review here.

Below you can check out a pair of clips from Leto, which is in UK cinemas and on MUBI from August 16th.


The official synopsis reads:

An underground rock band in 1980s Russia navigate a love triangle and the confines of creative censorship in Soviet Russia. Caught between musical passion, yearning romantic desire and a changing political landscape, the band tries to rise from their humble underground performances to make it big.
