Shattered Mirror is an extraordinary personal journey through ordinary Russian life at a time of great change. The filmmaker uses her own camera and familiarity with Russian society to present an intimate and piercing view of her fellow citizens and her country. At a fast-moving pace, we meet her friends and acquaintances, from the simple laborer to a newly rich entrepreneur.

The filmmaker turns the camera on her own life as well, providing deeply personal revelations, through scenes of her own wedding and of her mother's death. While filming a tense street confrontation between opposing political forces, she remarks through her tears, "I am shooting and crying!" The Shattered Mirror is a remarkable look at the new life, opportunities and challenges the people of Russia face. (Russian with English narration and subtitles)
