    When the 70-year-old communist Soviet Union was on the verge of collapse, and when the people of Saint Petersburg had to remain at their houses due to the unrest and coup against the regime, Taras Chernenko, a 15-year-old Christian born in a royal family of the city, was acquainted with a miraculous book which transformed his life fundamentally. Since Taras was a genius and could read when he was just one year old, he began studying different cultures and religions. At the time of the collapse of the communist regime, he found the opportunity to read the Quran in three days, which paved the way for his conversion to Islam. Now 20 years after the breakdown of the communist regime, Taras, who has also translated Nahj al-Balagha to Russian, has become one of the influential preachers of the Shia Islam in Russia. Through our journey with Taras, we come to know that he also has extensive knowledge about the history of Saint Petersburg. While he takes us to various places across Saint Petersburg, in our dialogues, he talks about the major reasons of his conversion to Islam and his familiarity with Iran’s Islamic Revolution and his special interest in Ayatollah Khomeini’s ideas.

              I was in Leningrad with independent filmmaker Jack O’Connell, who had been invited to bring his film Revolution to the International Documentary Festival. It was a little over a year after the fall of the Berlin Wall. When I saw this satirical “style show,” I was shocked by the costumes--and the lack of costumes, the contempt for authority, the overt anger. I was afraid the actors, who skewered powerful Russian leaders, might be arrested. It was a dangerous time, January 1991, just a few months before the Soviet Union broke apart. Hardliners were crying out for a return to Stalinism. I think these fearless activists were a forerunner of today’s Pussy Riot, a feminist rock protest group, three of whose members were jailed by Russian officials in 2012 for their “hooliganism” or heresy. Pussy Riot’s themes are much the same as the Laboratory of Experimental Modeling’s were over 20 years ago: feminism, LGBT rights, and opposition to the policies of political leaders. Warning: This show has partial nudity. For mature audiences.
