Lessons in history

"Farewell Comrades!", Gebr. Beetz Filmproduktion Berlin,
ARD, ZDF
1991. The Cold War is over. "Farewell Comrades!" (Gebr. Beetz Filmproduktion Berlin, Arte, ZDF) was a six-part TV series backed up by a book project and web documentary taking the audience on an emotional journey through the former Soviet Union. It is a project about personal stories visualized by means of dozens of postcards written during the last 15 years of the USSR. Clicking a postcard will launch its writer's video portraits.

A remarkable web doc framed by extensive research: "Farewell Comrades!" is a thrilling history lesson on a former superpower, about everyday life in a country everyone thought it would last forever.
