In 1987, Andrius had the idea to make a film “Version” re-enactment of the revolution of the 1917 year. It was filmed on a Krasnogorsk 16 mm movie camera in an abandoned Apraksin yard together with the “Total Jazz” group, which brought together guys from different parts of the city, known each other from concerts in the rock club and the Palace of Youth (youth center designated for the creative work, sport training and after-school clubs). Several film screenings of the Version were held at the LOMO Progress Culture Center, at the Textile Institute (State University of Industrial Technologies and Design) and at the Bonch-Bruevich Institute.
