"Playful, insightful, hypnotic, and, ultimately, superb…"—Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine

My Perestroika follows five ordinary Russians living in extraordinary times—from their sheltered Soviet childhood, to the collapse of the Soviet Union during their teenage years, to the constantly shifting political landscape of post–Soviet Russia. Together, these childhood classmates paint a complex picture of the dreams and disillusionment of those raised behind the Iron Curtain. (87 mins., video)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
