Glasnost Film Festival Vol. 4: Chernobyl and The Bam Zone. Chernobyl: Chronicle of Difficult Weeks was made by the first film crew in the disaster zone following the meltdown of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986. For more than two weeks, they fought for the right to film, then shot continuously for more than three months. A lifeless city. Empty villages. A dead forest. Portions of the film itself are exposed with white blotches--radiation leakage. Various agencies blocked its wider release and Soviet film goers saw the film only after the director's tragic death from radiation poisoning. Directed by Vladimir Shevchenko, 1988, 53 mins. The Bam Zone: Permanent Residents is a daring film set in Siberia. The Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) Railroad is called the longest monument to the stagnation of the Brezhnev era. "Before filming, we screened miles of BAM films. There were marches and songs, meetings and delegationsBut behind the screen, actually, equipment was breaking down, lives were broken and souls became calloused." Directed by Mikhail Pavlov, 1987, 18 mins. Russian with English subtitles.
