Afterimage, Nov. 1989, v. 17, no. 4, pp. 2, 21

"Bloodstained Works: The Glasnost Film Festival" lists and describes several different films within the festival which toured 22 American cities. The films explore subject matter such as famine, repression, wars, disappearances, mass graves, concentration camps, family, and time. Vogel critiques the Soviet documentaries and their limits based upon censorship, state funding, and lack of criticality of the past and present, with regard to the institutional bases.
