Volume 3 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.

The Tailor, 50 min.
A Film by Vladislav Mirzoyan

A sobering look at the spiritual void and disillusionment of the current generation of middle aged adults. They entered life with faith in their talent, destiny, and love. But by the dawn of the Brezhnev years, they were aged before their time, having lost their preferred work and the opportunity for creative self-realization.

Early on Sunday, 16 min.
A Film by Murat Mamedov

A simple, endearing film. On a Sunday morning in winter, several old village women go to the forest to gather wood. They chop down trees, build a fire, banter about life, and go home. Their unpretentious observations evoke bursts of laughter, feelings of compassion, and an immense respect for their dignity and patience.
