Film: From Slavery to Freedom

Directed by Arkady Kogan | Israel | 2019 | 84 minutes

In 1977, Natan Sharansky, a famous human rights activist, was arrested on charges of spying for the USA, treason and anti-Soviet agitation. Revisit a Soviet era where there was an overwhelming sense of fear and insecurity in the face of the system.

Sharansky defied this system in his fight for freedom and national identification and, after spending years in prison, ultimately won the struggle, paving the way for all of Soviet Jewry.
