MISS GULAG

May 21, 2011 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm

Free

Director Maria Ibrahimova and producers Raphaela Neihausen & Irina Vodar will all be in attendance for a screening & DVD release party of “Miss Gulag”.

Through the prism of a beauty pageant staged by female inmates of a Siberian prison camp emerges a complex narrative of the lives of the first generation of women to come of age in Post-Soviet Russia.
“Miss Gulag” explores the individual destinies of three women: Yulia, Tatiana, and Natasha, all bound together by long prison sentences and circumstances that have made them the vigilantes of their own destinies.

For these women, undoubtedly, life is harsh under the constant surveillance of UF-91/9, but it is no less so on the outside. Today they, their families, and loved ones are sustained by hope for a better life upon release. This is a story of survival told from both sides of the fence.
