"Perestroika and Punk Rock" - an interview of Vladimir Kozlov by Sean Guillory
Sean Guillory, now supported by the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies at the University of Pittsburgh, has created the SRB pod-casts: a series of high-quality interviews and talks, usually dealing with issues and writers relevant to the study of childhood, youth, culture, and politics in the former Soviet Union.
Guillory positions this episode with these words: "Vladimir Kozlov is an novelist and filmmaker. He’s written over a dozen fiction and non-fiction books and the winner of the Made in Russia award for literature in 2013 and nominated for GQ Russia’s Writer of the Year in 2011 and 2012. His most recent books translated into English are USSR: Diary of a Perestroika Kid and 1987 and Other Stories. He’s also the director of several films, including Traces in the Snow, a groundbreaking documentary about the influential Siberian punk rock movement of the 1980s."
