View the Film: "My Perestroika" and Meet the Director
Busch Student Center, 251
We will show the documentary, My Perestroika, and then Ms. Robin Hessman, the filmmaker and director, will speak and answer questions. The documentary uses archival footage, home movies, and interviews to trace the lives of a group of friends as the Soviet Union collapsed. It provides unique insights into recent history, how ordinary people cope with radical social change, how we can start to understand the lives of people very different from ourselves, and how film can capture these things.
