"This video is about the power of habit, about the external factors and limitations, - said Manizha, - And that no matter what, you're you, and it will not change anything. Even if Paganini played in the subway, he would be what he was... In terms of the quarantine we were shut up in their apartments, in their thoughts. As Brodsky, "merged with the Wallpaper." But despite the limitations there, behind the door, life..."
