The project is an attempt to reconstruct all major all major terrorist attacks carried out in Moscow since the collapse of the Soviet Union using the language of modern consumer technologies. A series of selfie videos shot at the sites of the events were edited with video filters and sound effects. The short clips play in sequential order, thus mimicking the appearance of posts on social media. The title comes from the Russian song »Поздний вечер в Сорренто« (»Late Night in Sorrento«) performed by a street musician inside the Moscow metro—a recurrent theme in the video.

The project is developed with the support of Web Residencies by Akademie Schloss SolitudeZKM | Center for Art and Media.
