Tramvayny prospekt, Russia, 2010, 37 min, DVD, Human Rights, Social Issues, Society, Youth Documentary
The house at Tramvayny prospect No.15 in St. Petersburg is special: it’s a crisis centre for women called “Little Mother”. They are underage orphans themselves, but already mothers. And they have very different stories to tell - about their children’s fathers, the disappearance of their parents or about being a mother. They get to live here together for a year, in this oasis of a society deliberately (almost) without men, a unique opportunity in a Russia more or less devoid of real social institutions. They are supported and protected and prepared for life outside. They don’t have to earn money yet, but they all know how to do it.
