Volume 8 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.

This is How We Live, 30 min.
A Film by Vladimir Oseledchik

A shocking look at the alienation and moral depravity of young people. The ugliest of them are homegrown fascists, who wear swastikas on their sleeves. They introduce the viewer to their program for reconstructing society through sterilization and selection.

Homecoming, 17 min.
A Film by Tatyana Chubakova

Veterans of the Soviet involvement in Afghanistan return home from the battlefield with unresolved feelings about a demoralizing and unpopular war.

"Nobody asked my generation whether we should have this war or not," bitterly comments one veteran. Another one observes, "All the ones that have come back, you can see it from the look on their faces. They have anguish in their eyes. The war hurts your body, and even more your soul."
