How hard could it be? Hard. Very hard.

In early 2017, we decided to create a documentary film and book about the lives of Russians born 100 years ago, in 1917 – Russia's year of revolution.

We successfully crowdfunded the project in the spring of 2017, and work began in earnest. The epic 20,000-kilometer road trip to meet and interview all the centenarians took place in August. By November we had released the documentary film, and in early 2018 the book was released, first in English, then in Russian.
