20 km north of Moscow spreads the small town, which bears the name of the popular state-owned newspaper of the USSR “Pravda”. Pravda means truth and justice.
At the town’s station people are waiting underneath the place-name sign, which is obliterated by passing trains and becomes again and again visible.
My presence on the other platform and the clearly exposed video camera are accepted by the travelers without comment. The on-going shooting is turned into the counterpart of waiting.
