Manifesto unfolds from a montage of digital vignettes, captured and shared by today’s Russian youth via YouTube and TikTok. Ranging from the sunlit innocence of spirited school gatherings to the chilling activities of mass evacuations, and the constant permutations of control and dogma via discourse. Here, the smartphone is omnipresent, capturing the light and dark, no matter how bizarre or tragic the situation is. In this symphony of narratives, a complicated tale emerges, painting a captivating portrait of how a state’s ideology may create some of our darkest dreams in our most innocent minds. A dark twist at the end unveils a harsh reality that reminds us how gun control, mental health, and power may all be intertwined.
