In his journey from Moskou to Magadan, presenter Jelle brandt Corstius visited numerous areas of Russia. Now it’s time for the trip back, and he choses to take the train. Taking a train in Russia, is like a small incursion in Russian daily lives.
Original title of this documentary: ‘Het spoor terug’, March 2009.
What’s left of communism? How big are the differences between the poor and the rich? What is the influence of corruption? Is Russia a “young democracy” (as former Dutch prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende previously said)? Is it a “sovereign democracy” (according to Putin) or a “fascist regime” (as read in The Economist)? Jelle Brandt Corstius is looking for the topics that rule the life of ordinary Russians in Russia.
