Viktor Tsoi, the charismatic rocker who became a symbol of the Soviet reformist perestroika movement and who through his music vocalized a nation’s desire for change and freedom, has stormed the Manege hall with a biopic exhibition in downtown Moscow.

"Tsoi is an inherent part of contemporary Russian culture," Alexandr Karmayev, creator and producer of the 'Viktor Tsoi. The Path of a Hero', tells Efe. "We wanted to understand the Tsoi phenomenon, as he is the only musician whose work is listened to by several generations."
