The movie is new rendering of traditional Russian folk song Katjusha, made before the Olympic Games in Sochi, showing support for the Russian LBGT community facing new oppressive laws. The story itself centers on The Olympic Torch Relay carrying the Olympic flame and love towards its final destination with a twist.


 

In support of sexual minorities in Russia and criticizing Putin’s oppressive policies, To Russia with Love was produced immediately before the Sochi
 Winter Olympics, and it was introduced to the world through an online campaign. ‘Le Zbor’, a Croatian lesbian and feminist choir, directed and starred in
 this film which is a music video for the Russian folk song Katjusha, portraying a world where a diversity of love and life exist. [HONG So-in]
