Little river band love is a bridge film clip may 1988


A bittersweet love story that takes place in the vision of their futures of two children, one American and one Soviet. The Soviet dreams of coming here, while the American dreams of dancing with the Bolshoi Ballet. As both try to pursue their goals, symbolically both countries still have a long way to go. The film is not political. The focus is on the cultures and people of our two dynamic countries.

  • Background

    The music video is the brainchild of Robert Kath, who brought the idea to All-Union State Institute of Cinematography (VGIK), the film school in Moscow.

    In July 1988, Robert Kath, and Paolo Mazzucato and Stuart Merrill traveled to Moscow, in what was, at the time, the U.S.S.R.. It had taken over a year of planning and preparation to find the proper channel of communication by which Kath’s proposal for a joint US/Soviet student film production could be delivered to a receptive authority within the Soviet Union

    The played song "Bridges of Trust" is a collaborative effort by Soviet composer Vladimir Kopisov and the American group Collective Vision.

    The first US/USSR student co-production, the film was screened via-satellite at American embassies around the world during the May/June 1990 summit between then presidents George Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev.
