Filmakers Library has just released "Widow of the Revolution: the Anna
Larina Story" a 52 minute documentary about the life of the wife of Nikolai
Bukharin, one of the top ten Bolsheviks in the early years of the Russian
Revolution. The documentary is based on her autobiography, This I Cannot
Forget, which she wrote in her later years, after being imprisioned for
twenty years in the Russian Gulag. She looks back on her tumultuous life (
with Vanessa Redgrave doing the English voice over). Extraordinary archival
footage and interviews round out this
memorable story.
