My Husband Andrei Sakharov| 52mins
Director: Inara Kolmane | Producer: Janis Juhnevics, Estelle Robin You
Focus Years: 2006 | Country: Latvia
How does the brains of the Soviet regime, an academician, the father of the hydrogen bomb, an outstanding intellectual for whom even in the Kremlin, all doors were open become an irreconcilable champion of human rights, prisoners of conscience, and an internationally renowned enemy of this system? The film "My Husband Andrei Sakharov" answers this question in an intriguing yet subdued, even intimate form: by presenting the views of witnesses to those times and Sakharov’s colleagues. His widow Yelena Bonner and the last secretary general of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, are the two brightest participants in this indirect debate in the film, not only in presenting facts but also, their interpretations. The forceful poetry of the documentary footage makes one think about the games of power and the guarantees of human freedom that is a topical theme not only in Russia.
