The movie-almanac represents five short stories – leisurely stories about the meaningless and even death danger of the speed-limits exceeding, advantages of life on the safe speed.

Feodor Bondarchuk, Peter Buslov, Vladimir Kott, Alexander Lungin, Sergey Osipyan, Boris Hlebnikov became directors of the film almanac ‘No Rush’.
Mass media and art workers have started talking about this problem. After the launch of the campaign there were made more than 700 publications, the project received an extended coverage in social networks (Twitter, Vkontakte, Facebook, Livejournal). And nearly 60 % of the population noted that the subject of a correct speed choice and the speed mode compliance is broadly covered in the mass media, and nearly 40 % of Russians have changed their attitude to the compliance of a speed mode and corrected the choice of speed to the proper one.Посетить сайт проекта
