Season 7, Episode 8 My Perestroika

First Aired: July 20, 2014

"My Perestroika" chronicles Russian life pre- and post- the USSR's collapse through the eyes of five schoolmates who grew up during the Brezhnev era. "It was childhood, so it was a happy time," one says of those repressive, economically stagnate years. Their world began to change in 1986, however, when Mikhail Gorbachev launched the glasnost and perestroika initiatives, and then turned upside-down after the Soviet Union's 1991 breakup. Archival footage and home movies accent the insightful film.
