7 pm in the UWM Union Cinema
The UWM Stahl Center for Jewish studies presents a screening of this fascinating documentery and a talkback with director Robin Hessman. MY PERESTROIKA follows five ordinary Russians living in extraordinary times — from their sheltered Soviet childhood, to the collapse of the Soviet Union during their teenage years, to the constantly shifting political landscape of post-Soviet Russia. Together, these childhood classmates paint a complex picture of the dreams and disillusionment of those raised behind the Iron Curtain.
