Coming to the end of another Moscow evening. Long nights drawing out so that it stays light almost to eleven. Some good work today on the new film Vakhtangov and the Russian Theatre . Really just in the early stages of pre production, script writing, collecting research materials etc but things starting to take on a rough shape. Over the weekend met with Slava who was the camera operator on two of the films in my series about the Russian Avant-garde - "Mayakovsky" and "Meyerhold Theatre and the Russian Avant-garde" in the Scandinavian restaurant. Restuarant which harks back to the mid 1990s but still maintains its allure as a meeting place for foreigners. One of its attractions is the beautiful shaded courtyard.
