Volume 12 of the Glasnost Film Festival.

The Glasnost Film Festival is a 12 DVD collection featuring 22 documentary films produced or released in the beginning of the "Glasnost Era" in the Soviet Union, 1986-1988. These independent films definitively document the historic cultural and political shifts that led to greater openness and the eventual demise of the Soviet Union in 1991.

All were produced originally on 35mm film and are subtitled in English.


Are You Going to the Ball?, 28 min.
A Film by Nadezhda Khvorova

An unprecedented look at the hardships young girls endured to be a part of the famous Soviet Olympic gymnastics team. Features perspectives from former athletes Olga Korbut and Lyudmila Turischeva.



Tomorrow is a Holiday, 19 min.
A Film by Sergei Bukovshy

With indifferent and mechanical movements, women workers stuff live chickens into metal containers. The camera observes that there is not much difference between the executioners and the victims. The workers' dorms are not homes but rather utilitarian lodgings — containers for people.
