Film Screening-- The Collapse of the Soviet Union

October 25, 2007 // 4:00pm6:00pm
Event Co-sponsors: 
Cold War International History Project

Igor Grazin, co-producer and scriptwriter; Member of Parliament, Estonia; and former Public Policy Scholar, Woodrow Wilson Center; Discussant: Thomas Blanton, Director, National Security Archive, George Washington University

This documentary is based primarily on original footage shot in the Kremlin in 1989 by People's Deputies of the USSR who had worked as television journalists prior to becoming politicians. It shows the collapse of the USSR in its natural sequence: the emergence of Pope John Paul II, the rise of the Solidarity movement in Poland, and, decisively according to this film, the popular nationalist movements in the Baltic states. The film includes contemporary interviews with the major politicians of the era, including Mikhail Gorbachev, Aleksandr Yakovlev, and Lech Walesa.
