More About PYOTR495: PYOTR495 is a short film set in Russia in the year 2014. The country has invaded the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, the newly instated LGBT Propaganda Law makes it illegal to present gay life as normal, while Russian President Vladimir Putin’s approval rating is at a 6 year high. We begin in the run-down, white Soviet-era tower blocks in the Cheryomushki district of Moscow, and follow our character, Pyotr, as he leaves his apartment and ventures out into the night on his scooter and under the passing lights of the city streets as he is baited into a dangerous scenario at the sprawling apartment of a member of one of Moscow’s financial elite..
