Volume 6 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.


And the Past Seems But a Dream, 87 min.
A Film by Sergei Miroshnichenko

In 1937, a group of children wrote an idealistic book titled We Are From Igarka. Fifty years later, director Sergei Miroshnichenko planned on filming what he thought would be their touching reunion, but instead another childhood revealed itself. The former residents discuss a time that was a painful nightmare as well as complicated attitudes towards Stalin.



Theatre Square, 28 min.
A Film by Gigor Arutunyan

On June 1, 1988, a hunger strike was staged in Yerevan's Theater Square over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, populated mainly by Armenians but part of the neighboring republic of Azerbaijan. The film presents this dispute without any narration or interviews.
