"My Perestroika" is an intimate look at the last generation of Soviet children. Five classmates go from living sheltered childhoods to experiencing the hopes of Gorbachev’s reforms and the confusion of the USSR’s dissolution to searching for their places in today’s Moscow. With candor and humor, the punk rocker, single mother, entrepreneur, and married teachers paint a picture of the challenges, dreams, and disappointments of those raised behind the Iron Curtain. Through first-person testimony, vérité footage, and vintage home movies, this beautifully crafted documentary reveals a Russia rarely seen on film. A co-production of Red Square Productions/Bungalow Town Productions and ITVS International in association with American Documentary | POV. An Official Selection of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
