Click here to register for the Zoom event. Join us for a screening of "Women of the Gulag" and Q&A with director Marianna Yarovskaya. "Women of the Gulag" tells the compelling stories of several female labor camp survivors. While Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago largely recounts the experiences of the men caught in Stalin’s camps, Marianna Yarovskaya’s 2019 Oscar shortlisted documentary film features six women in their 80s and 90s as they go about their daily lives and reflect on their experiences. Their accounts range from the horrific to the uplifting. The film also juxtaposes the troubling resurgence of praise for Stalin with the fight to preserve and disseminate the memory of Soviet repressions, terror, and displacement.
