Evan Mack & Joshua McGuire: Yeltsin in Texas
The unlikely true story of Boris Yeltsin’s visit to a Houston supermarket and his eye-opening experience that shatters his view of communism.
It was in 1989 after having toured the Johnson Space Center that Russian president Boris Yeltsin stopped in to experience a Houston supermarket. The abundance, the selection, and the happy employees he encountered there delighted, overwhelmed, and forever changed him and his policies.
Evan Mack and Joshua McGuire, the creators of Lucinda y las Flores de la Nochebuena, bring this unlikely episode of Houston history to life with irreverence, humor, and homage to the 1980’s sound world.
