The starting point of Wednesday 19.07.1961 is rather bizarre. For an entire year, Victor Kossakovsky searched for inhabitants of St. Petersburg who were born on Wednesday, July 19, 1961, his own birthday, in former Leningrad. His quest, which grew more and more obsessive along the way, garnered some significant results: 51 women and 50 men fit the profile. Over the course of time, a few of these 101 people had died, while others had moved to another city or abroad. But in 1995, Kossakovsky managed to capture all 70 remaining residents on film, in the street, at work or simply at home. He spends time among doctors and patients, entertainers and businessmen, construction workers and homeless people. In his unorthodox style, Kossakovsky has produced a beautiful portrait of thirtysomethings in St. Petersburg.
