Exceptional documentary following first hand accounts of the impact of Stalin's reign of terror over ordinary people. It's like the stuff of the worst kind of dystopian fiction: tens of millions of people arrested for no reason and forced to confess to mysterious crimes before being forced into slave labour by their own country to build canals, railways, etc. until they became so worn out that they were shot in the head and dumped in the cement with whatever they were building. Children tortured physically and mentally and forced to accuse their parents of conspiracy. And it's all real .
I've been meaning to watch that. Hopefully be able to watch it on Friday when I'm off work.
It's a three parter, overall just over two hours I think. I can't believe I put off watching it for so long (first time watching it today), it's among the best documentaries I've ever seen.
