My Perestroika

Wednesday, March 23 - Thursday, May 19, 2011

This is the story of five ordinary Russians living in extraordinary times — from sheltered Soviet childhood, to the collapse of the USSR in their teenage years, to the constantly shifting political landscape of post-Soviet Russia. Weaving interviews of the one-time classmates together with rare home movie footage from the ’70s and ’80s and official Soviet propaganda films, MY PERESTROIKA paints a complex picture of the dreams and disillusionment of those raised behind the Iron Curtain.
