Checkhov’s Dogs: A Documentary about Russians, Mushrooms and the Diaspora
The Dacha Project is in Chekhov’s Dogs, a very special documentary (in progress) about Russians, Mushrooms and the Diaspora!
Katya Gorker, a Russian-American filmmaker from Philadelphia is “tracing the cultural tradition of Mushroom foraging in Russia and the diaspora.” (all music by Animal Hospital).
While far from completion, with a trip to Russia still on the horizon, Katyachka has put together a short excerpt from the footage shot at the Dacha Project and somewhere else in NY (a place clearly special as far as the footage tells us).
Check it out, and let us know what you think!
