List of Series

“The Soviet System” programme tells about the phenomenon, which is used as the title of this documentary series without any specific chronology and only shows the life of the huge country, which appeared in 1917 as a result of the Revolution and existed up to the moment when the USSR ceased its existence in Belovezhskaya Pushcha.
The aim of the film is not to reconsider certain previously given assessments, or cauterize some people and praise the others. We only want to tell about the way the country lived all these years, what events became important to it, what happened to it and in it, what was the impact over the rest of the world and, first of all, over the people, who lived in this country and still do.
Each film is based on a story of a person, or the fate of some significant event. This story will form the storyline, which will serve as a stem for other stories, not less important. Each episode will present a kind of “Portrait against Epoch”. Telling about one person or another or one event or another, we will also tell about the whole country in this or that year or decade.
