SOLZHENITSYN'S CHILDREN

1979 / 88min / Digital

DIRECTOR: MICHAEL RUBBO

Australian-Canadian documentarian Rubbo, along with Quebecois journalist Louis-Bernard Robitaille, travels to Paris to take the temperature of European Communism in general and in particular the French Left, still reeling from May ’68 and the publication of Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago. A unique, impassioned collection of often-contentious testimonials, including personal recollections of Soviet repression and a stinging indictment of careerist radicalism among the New Philosophers.

Solzhenitsyn's Children... Are Making a Lot of Noise in Paris is screening as part of Metrograph A to Z, a collection of films we think everybody should see.
