A Trolleybus for the Mayor
Boris Yeltsin became the first president of Russia at the age of sixty. What was his life like prior to that? Screened inside a real-life trolleybus-turned-movie theater, this documentary tells the story of Yeltsin’s ascent from village boy to a member of the powerful Politburo that ruled the Soviet Empire.
In the late 80s, even after Yeltsin became a Communist Party apparatchik and the mayor of Moscow, he would often ride a trolleybus to witness with his own eyes how regular Moscovites commuted to work.
