This film was shot while attending the “IX International Media-Forum of young journalists” in Russia.
With the beautiful city of St. Petersburg as background, hundreds of young people from Europe and Asia met to speak about the dialogue of cultures. This short film is a visual report of those days, walking the famous Nevsky Perspective and Palace Square, visiting the Hermitage Museum, and going deep into Russian history, culture and people.

Intro phrase:

«We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers,
who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once,
before a word has been spoken.»
