Icarus Films has 2 great new (old - they are both comprised entirely of
footage from Russian archives) films on the Soviet Union, both by Sergei
Loznitsa, REVUE and BLOCKADE.


Also, something to do with the wall is about the END of the Soviet Union but
still has some interesting insight into life on both sides of the Berlin


Good luck with the search!

Hi videolib list,

I'm hoping some folks will weigh in and let me know if they have, or know
of, any documentary DVDs on the Soviet Union. I've had a patron ask us to
get "The Soviet Story", but I don't know if that's the best one available on
this topic. I'd really appreciate your suggestions, and any information on
where to order them from.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
