Review

With the end of Soviet Socialism, Perestroika had become the seed of democracy. This is a found footage film on the great event that transformed in the Russian regime, politics, economy, and society. Loznitsa recollects the turbulent times through archive films. The film contains the process of change from Gorbachev to Yeltsin, people filled the Leningrad square and their voices. While people stormed the streets, the military refused to shoot them and the Soviet regime returned to its legacy. True to the Loznitsa’s documentary style, the film faithfully records the historic moments close to the reality. Viewer have every reason to consider the need of recollecting the past 20 years after the revolution. (JANG Byungwon)
