    This was the first story by Krzhizhanovsky I read and I loved it. Did you know it has been adapted to film? It’s 18 minutes long and, from what I can tell the film had its world premiere at the Tampere Film Festival in Finland in March 2018. It will probably be hard to find it, but here is the film’s official website. They even have a trailer there: https://www.quadraturin.com/
