23 American Life in Russia, 1959

American Life in Russia, 1959

Back in 1959 there was a strange exhibition held in Moscow. It was a show case of American way of life demonstrated to common Russian people, something unseen by them and never even dreamed to be seen during the harsh Stalin years. For this purpose thousands of examples of the American lifestyle were brought to Moscow and placed in the freshly built complex, that was also built by an American company. They brought everything you can imagine - American
cars, American food, Coca-Cola and jeans, but also they brought some really large objects like the real american shopping mall was brought and displayed in Moscow, or the example of a typical American home. This video was shot during that event by an American filmmaker and was originally more than fourty minutes long but due to youtube rules was shrinked to ten minutes. Still you can see most of it caught on tape.
