Russia's Georgy Paradzhanov, director and chief montage man, made a choice of archive strips from the 1920s into the 50s to go together with the music.

"Cinemaphony" was first shown in Russia, January 27. Naturally, the first night was in St. Petersburg, timed to the 61st anniversary of the end of the siege.
