Lena Faber Racing Car

Drive-TV series

I restored some of my Drive TV works, which eventually found in my computer, and put English subtitles. These short videos were made out of my newspaper column about tough driving in Moscow traffic and nonwritten rules on Russian roads. You can see a bit of Moscow of the latest 2000s as well.

Sometimes my friends-actors were acting, sometimes automotive dealers, sometimes pedestrians, and me. Once I invited the studio gate guards to the recording room, left them with the sound editor, and asked them to swear. That is how soundtrack, which illustrated the driver’s emotions in Moscow traffic, was made.

Lena Faber used to work as a journalist at a mainstream Russian newspaper, wrote books for a major publishing house, and directed her original concept on TV. In 2009, she moved to South Africa, taught at the university, took up running, and earned a silver medal at the World Masters Athletic Championship in California and, in the meantime, won an international photo contest with following up solo exhibition. In 2014 she "shut the door" and gone hiking the Appalachian Trail, cycling from Chicago to LA (US Route 66), from Maine to Florida, from London to Orkney, etc. Now in MidCoast, Maine.
