Twin Cities Public Television, Inc. (St. Paul, MN 55101-1492)
Catherine M. Allan (Project Director: January 2015 to present)


Production of a two-hour documentary exploring the complex life and legacy of Joseph Stalin.

From TPT National Productions and Middlemarch Films comes Stalin, a two-part film, targeted for PBS and international broadcast in 2017. Drawing upon new scholarship, imagery, and first-person accounts from the Russian Archives, as well as upon scenes and interviews from contemporary Russia, Stalin will paint a vivid picture of both the man and his legacy today. "Stalin was one of the most fateful personalities and leaders of the 20th century," writes adviser and historian Jonathan Brent, "and we're still living with the aftershocks of the system he created in important ways. We need to understand who Stalin was, what he did, where he came from, and the mystique of his power."
