A film synonymous with perestroika, Assa is the cult classic which helped to bring Russian rock into the mainstream. It features cameos from iconic artists such as Viktor Tsoi and Yuri Kasparyan, with a soundtrack by Boris Grebenshchikov. Set in wintry Yalta, the film follows several plotlines, as a young musician who falls for a mobster’s mistress vies for the screen with an 18th-century assassination plot. Chaotic and experimental, the film is a heartfelt cry for change.
