Прогулки с Бродским и так далее…

The film Walks with Brodsky was shot in 1993 in Venice. It was the first time the poet Iosif Brodsky has addressed the Russian audience in his native language. After Brodsky's death three years later, the authors of the documentary started a new film From nowhere with love. Remembering Joseph Brodsky. The film is based on memories of people from Norenskaya village of  Arkhangelsk region about the exiled poet. Also it frames farewell ceremony of him in the New York cathedral.

In 2014, Elena Yakovich published a book featuring the shooting process of Walks with Brodsky. The book presents a full version of Brodsky's poetry mentioned in the film, as well as photographs from personal archives of the poet's relatives and friends.
