Women of the Gulag

Development of a 90-minute documentary presenting the life experiences of women caught up in the repressive gulag system of Stalin's Soviet regime that caused the death of over 20 million people.

This feature length documentary tells the compelling and tragic stories of women survivors of the Gulag, where Gulag is broadly defined as the system used for the repression and terror of the Russian/Soviet people during the Stalin regime; it includes prisons, work colonies, special settlements, and places of exile. We have assembled an international team of experts, scholars, and witnesses, both in Russia and in the West, to provide context and meaning to the stories of the women survivors.
