Film Screening: Marina Goldovskaya's "Solovki Power" (1989)

October 26, 2011

Solovki Power is a harrowing documentary about the first Soviet prison camp that was established in a 15th century monastery on a remote White Sea island in 1923. The camp became the model for the dreaded gulags that followed. Solovky operated under the Leninist motto, “With an iron hand, mankind will be driven to happiness.”

The film will be presented by Dr. Dmitrii Sidorov.

Light refreshments will be served.
