Solzhenitsyn, A. Sakharov, and others. Q&A with film-director.

Natalia Gorbanevskaya: I am not a Hero

54 min 2017 Russia

On August 25, 1968, the Russian poet Natalia Gorbanevskaya’s actions changed her life: carrying her three-month-old son, she, with seven like-minded people, protested against the Soviet-led intervention of Czechoslovakia at the Red Square in Moscow. The cost of this action was years of imprisonment. The film-team has been interviewing their character for several years for this documentary.

He immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s, and became the “voice of honor” for the Russian-speaking multi-ethnic Diaspora. Awards: Grand Prix at the International Film festival in Gatchina in 2016.
