- Series Description
FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.
- Program Description
Soviet film directors have one advantage over Westerners: the State takes care of the budget. But in return the State expects firm control over all production. Although films may criticize society, the State insists on constructive criticism. Dinara Asanova, one of the few female directors of Soviet features, knows how to bend the rules -- departing from the approved script and changing characters and locations, with controversial results.
