"The Soviet Story" Chronicles the Abuses of the USSR
"The Soviet Story" is a documentary by Edvins Snore detailing the abuses and horrors of the Soviet Union over a seventy-four year period. I picked up on it when I read that Mikheil Saakashvili had attended the premiere in Tbilisi. The summary listed by IMDb is below.
"The Soviet Story" is a unique first time documentary film by director Edvins Snore. The film tells the story of the Soviet regime and how the Soviet Union helped Nazi Germany instigate the Holocaust. The film shows recently uncovered archive documents revealing this. Interviews with former Soviet Military intelligence officials reveal shocking details. "The Soviet Story" was filmed over 2 years in Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Germany, France, UK and Belgium. Material for the documentary was collected by the author, Edvins Snore, for more than 10 years. As a result, "The Soviet Story" presents a truly unique insight into recent Soviet history, told by people, once Soviet citizens, who have first-hand knowledge of it.
Although the theatrical release date in the US was in October of this year, there has yet to be any details of a DVD yet. Below is a trailer of the film.
