Films & Other Videos

Films with:

Blokada
Archival footage of Leningrad during the longest siege of World War II. The siege lasted for 900 days, with the blockade contributing to the largest-scale famine ever seen in the industrialized world.
DVD 4973
Fabrika
A stunning visually tour through the belly of an old Soviet industrial plant in the Urals filmed in 2004. While male workers toil over fiery blast furnaces, pour molten steel into giant casting ladles, and hammer metal spikes into colossal machines, their female counterparts operate the assembly lines, endlessly moving clay blocks from one conveyor belt to another. The film presents an unapologetic questioning of Russia's ability to emerge as a modern industrial nation in the 21st century.
DVD 4933
Haltepunkt
In this haunting film, set inside an isolated train depot in rural Russia at nightime, everyone is asleep. Without narration and bathed in a ghostly light, the film has been described as a metaphor for what people in Russia are feeling today, a sense of "falling out of time."
DVD 5155
Maidan
Chronicles the uprising that toppled the government of Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovich and has since developed into an international crisis between Russia and the West.
DVD 11634
Portret
What first appear to be photographs of elderly Russian peasants and farmers, becomes an evocative meditation on old Russia and new, a snapshot of a disappearing way of life. As they stand in their work clothes, often with tools by their side, looking into the camera, this remarkable film with poetic rigor, captures a people, a world, that is quickly vanishing.
DVD 5153
Poselenie
This visually arresting documentary about a strange community in the Russian countryside, shows residents of a rural settlement seemingly involved in everyday farm work -- harvesting fields, chopping wood, working at a sawmill and maintaining the property. Yet, as the film evolves, the viewer comes to realize that the workers, are in fact, patients. Their daily chores serve only therapeutic purposes. Suffused with the sounds and rhythms of rural life, is the film a parable of post-Soviet society or simply a testament to the importance of nature in modern lives?
DVD 5154
Predstavlenie Revue /
Excerpts from newsreels, propaganda films, TV shows and feature films that present a evocative portrait of Soviet life during the 1950s and the 1960s.
DVD 6430
