A Tram Runs Through the City


A Tram Runs Through the City (1973, Lyudmila Stanukinas, dir.) is a lyrical portrait of Leningrad and its people as glimpsed on and from a tram driven by Lyudmila Grigorovich. Long considered a classic and beloved by Leningraders (and Petersburgers), this is the first English translation of the film's voiceover narrative, presented here along with the film itself.
