Back In The Soviet Bloc

Back In The Soviet Bloc (2013)

Upon discovering her Soviet background, Julia Nalivaiko's friends often ask, "What's it like over there?". To answer, she travelled to Russia and Ukraine with Australian filmmaker Stuart McBratney, in an attempt to better understand the country she left as a child. Filmed in 2011, well before Euromaidan and the resulting Ukrainian crisis, the series explores the effects of the Soviet Union and its subsequent collapse on Ukraine and Russia. It offers a unique and personal glimpse into the daily life of its people and sheds light on the complex relationship between the two countries.

Directed by Stuart McBratney. Julia Nalivaiko
