Bart Simpson Meets The Real Life Realities Of Russian Society

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Pop artist Alexei Semyonov just released his arthouse remake of America’s favourite cartoon family. In an effort to make it more interesting and realistic they scraped the jokes, feel-good atmosphere, and added a liberal dose of violence, drugs, & petty crime. That means seeing Bart stealing mobile phones, Lisa being surrounded by police as she busks on the street and a finale of domestic violence between parents thrown in for good measure. 

The feeling is a terrible reminder of the reality faced by many families around the world. 

Happy New Year.
