Description
 
Two courageous women fell victim to one of the 20th century's greatest tyrants--Joseph Stalin--and they should not be forgotten. The The Anna Akhmatova File (Semyon Aranovich, USSR, 1989, 65 mins.) is a moving portrait of the extraordinary Soviet poet, Anna Akhmatova. Although her work was banned and went unpublished for 17 years, her poem "Requiem" became the underground anthem for the millions who suffered under Stalin. In Russian with English subtitles. This is accompanied by My Name Was Sabina Spielrein (Elisabeth Marton, Sweden, 2002, 90 mins.). In 1977, a surprising find in Switzerland led to the re-discovery of one of the most important female figures in the early history of psychoanalysis. The found diaries and letters revealed an extensive relationship between the unknown Russian-Jewish psychiatrist Sabina Spielrein and two founding fathers of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Through recreations and voice-over readings of Sabina's letters, the lost story comes alive and a true pioneer of psychoanalysis and child psychology gets the recognition she deserves long after Stalin condemned her discipline. In German with English subtitles.
