- The Glasnost Film Festival is a 12-video collection featuring 22 Soviet documentary films produced in the "Glasnost Era." Many of the films remain definitive and timeless documents of previously unexplored aspects of Soviet history and culture. Shevchenko's film crew was the first in the disaster zone following the meltdown of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986, documenting both the disaster and the heroic and horrifying attempts to clean up. They shot continuously for more than three months. Portions of the film are exposed with white blotches -- a radiation leakage. The film wasn't shown immediately because of party censorship; it was released only after the death of the director and heavily cut.
