The Soviet Story coming to Ottawa

April 15, 2010

The Free Thinking Film Society and Tribute to Liberty are proud to present the first major Ottawa screening of the documentary, The Soviet Story, a film about the horrible crimes of the Soviet Union.

The Soviet Story will be shown in Ottawa on May 11th at 7:00 PM, at the Mayfair Theatre (1074 Bank Street).   Writer/Director Edvins Snore will be in attendance to answer questions.

The Soviet Story was filmed over 2 years in Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Germany, France, UK and Belgium. Material for the documentary was collected by the author, Edvins Snore, for more than 10 years. As a result,  the film presents a truly unique insight into recent Soviet history, told by people, once Soviet citizens, who have firsthand knowledge of it.
