Annotation

The theme of the painting is parallel life, parallel culture, which most often do not intersect with the main stream of life. The Leningrad Bypass Canal, built as a bypass waterway of the city, became the original metaphor of the film. The subjects of the picture are very diverse: the May Day concert in a madhouse, the life of a psychiatric hospital, the "gemini ball" from 3 to 70 years, etc. Works of A.Sinyavsky and N.Rozanova in the printing house, poets Viktor Krivulin and Alexander Gornon, the theater "Tree", etc.
