The Czech documentary "Children of the 1950s" (previously entitled "Children of Stalinism"), a gripping account of the children of Czech political prisoners, have just received two awards at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (NYIIFVF).
It received the audience award for international film and the award for best international historical documentary.
The first part of the seven-episode cycle, shot by students of the Prague film school FAMU, is devoted to the daughters of political prisoners. The next part will focus on the sons of political prisoners.
Please watch the following video preview of the documentary.
Tragically, this type of suffering is still occurring just 90 miles from our shores.
It also helps puts the extraordinary courage of Cuba's Ladies in White into even greater historical context.
