Natasha runs a canteen for employees and visitors in a secret research institute somewhere in the Soviet Union. During the day she hands out food, in the evening she joins in wild parties, attended by people of all classes and political backgrounds. Their daily routine, however, is disrupted one day by the arrival of Luc, a French scientist. DAU. Natasha is the first part of a fascinating multi-genre project that emerged between 2009 and 2011: hundreds of volunteers, scientists and artists were filmed as they simulated life in the Soviet Union from the late 1930s to the end of the 1960s.
