Moonlight People is a black-and-white 2019 Russian independent film directed by Dmitrii Frolov. It is based on Vasily Rozanov treatise Moonlight People. Treatise by Vasily Rozanov, devoted to the study of sexuality and its denial in Christianity. Published in St. Petersburg in 1911.
Two young men and two girls on a moonlit night confess to each other in their strange fantasies and loves that go beyond the usual standards. Each of the young people and girls recalls their erotic adventures and talk about them at the table after dinner on a moonlit night. After that, two figures playing chess suddenly appear in the room. The film ends with universal enthusiasm on the seashore. The impetus to making the film was the book of the same name by the Russian religious philosopher Vasily Rozanov, who died 100 years ago. His treatise was devoted to the study of sexuality and its denial in Christianity.
