RESILIENCE

In 1917, Russia was wracked by revolution, famine, war, and unrest. And yet, all during that year children were born and raised. Resilience is a film about seven of those children, 100 years later, and their remarkable life stories. The 25-minute documentary film is presented in Russian with English subtitles.

“Our project, The Children of 1917, has been in the works for nearly two years. My Russian collaborators and I traveled over 20,000 kilometers tracking down, interviewing, and filming 22 Russian centenarians who were born in 1917. The stories they shared with us were powerful, intense first-person accounts of the last 100 years of Russian history, and we are eager to share them with the world. The release of RESILIENCE is the first step in that process.”
