My PerestroikaPosted July 27th, 2011 by Tom
This wonderful documentary introduces us to five ordinary Russian people. They grew up in the Soviet Union, watched that system collapse during their teenage years, witnessed the extraordinary political changes that resulted, and raised families in post-Soviet Russia.
Of particular interest to me is that one of the editors of My Perestroika is Alla Kovgan, the talented artist who edited, co-directed, and co-wrote the film of our family journey: Traces of the Trade.
From the film’s website:
I encourage you to watch this wonderful film.
