Russian Homemade

Russian homemade is a found footage film featuring videos collected from a free-porn website and tagged as “Russian homemade”. Showcasing examples of low-budget amature production such as bad acting, cutting slips, cheap interior design and low resolution of the image, Russian homemade becomes an anthology of traditional patterns typical for romantic relationships of couples with post-Soviet cultural background. Excluding explicit content, the film authors instead focus on plotted parts of the videos and create a blended cinematic genre of both fiction and documentary.
