Title 17th Of August / by Alexander Ilyich Gutman
Published Montreal, QC : Journeyman Pictures, 2012


Description 1 online resource (54 minutes)
Series Current affairs in video
Summary On a remote island in Northern Russia Boris is serving a life sentence for triple murder. He is one of the first to do so in post-Soviet Russia after the death penalty was abolished in 1993. This unsettling documentary brings us inside, not only Boris' dark, cold, claustrophobic cell but also the hidden recesses of his mind. For us it's just a picture, but on the other side of the lens Boris' mind has to deal with the reality that the squalid space offers against the infinity of his 'life' sentence
