Born in the USSR


I have finally watched these documentaries.

It started in the UK with the original Up Series about British children from various socio-economic backgrounds who were filmed every 7 years since 1964.
Russian Up Series tells the stories of my peers, kids who were born in 1984. I found the first films particularly interesting because I do not remember much about socialist life and being an oktyabrenok (little octobrist).

First film – age 7

Second film – age 14

Third film – age 21

Fourth film – age 28

Bonus: a song about Vietnam war by a popular Russian rock band Чиж&Co

Though I prefer live version without Pearl Harbour shots.
