That Empty Space, MacEwan Student Centre

Five ordinary Russians living in extraordinary times

MY PERESTROIKA follows five ordinary Russians living in extraordinary times — from their sheltered Soviet childhood, to the collapse of the Soviet Union during their teenage years, to the constantly shifting political landscape of post-Soviet Russia. Together, these childhood classmates paint a complex picture of the dreams and disillusionment of those raised behind the Iron Curtain.

Attendance is free for students and $10 for non-students. Non-students can also bring a donation for the SU Campus Food Bank instead of paying for admission. The food bank prefers donations of meal helpers (Sidekicks/Uncle Ben’s rice), canned pasta/chili, Kraft Dinner, peanut butter, dry pasta, canned veggies and/or beans, canned salmon/tuna, dry soup (Mr. Noodle/Ichiban), cereal, or pasta and tomato sauce.
Please note that the SU Campus Food Bank CANNOT accept Expired Food.

Directed by Robin Hessman | 2011 | 87 mins.
