BLESS YOU!

Against the backdrop of Saint Petersburg’s back courtyards during the Corona lockdown, Tatiana Chistova fuses recordings of the almost empty city and calls to a municipal hotline tasked with offering help and advice, but topics range from the banal to existential questions.
Elderly people in particular are affected by poverty, hunger and loneliness.
Chistova highlights that in a system that neglects its weakest members, the virus is not the only threat.
