Soviet Barbara: The story of Ragnar Kjartansson in Moscow (TBC)

Gaukur Úlfarsson

In 1992, only a week after the fall of the Soviet Union, the American soap opera Santa Barbara became for ordinary Russians a window into the western way of life and immensely popular with the nation. Thirty years later an Icelandic contemporary artist, Ragnar Kjartansson, brings the series to life.
