Czech/American producer Robert Buchar has been working to collect witness testimony and historical research for a new film focused on a freedom movement of 1989 in Soviet Moscow -- in the offices of the Russian KGB.
"People will simply believe what they wish to believe. More people indulge their own ideas of the world rather than deal with its realities...," Buchar says. "I realized that the collapse of the communism in Europe is one of the most incredible stories of the century and the public should know what really happened."
By piecing together an "unprecedented body of interviews," Buchar says his new film, "The Collapse of Communism -- The Untold Story," will give the public "the big picture of what really happened."
From Buchar's website:
During the final phase of the Cold War the Soviet Union, under its dogmatic and visibly senile party bosses, was sinking into near-bankruptcy. Yuri Andropov, Chairman of the KGB, the only organization with both a full knowledge of the state of the economy and a mastery of strategic decisions, came to the conclusion that there was no cure for the grave illness of the communist system. To preserve the wealth that threatened to slip out of the leaders hands, he masterminded a nearly unthinkable program, throwing into the fire Moscow's rule over the Eastern European bloc, and, as it turned out, the ruling party of the USSR itself. Though Andropov died in 1984, the signs of his hand in the events that followed remain visible, as well as the role of his handpicked successor Mikhail Gorbachev. Our witnesses testify that what appeared to be a spontaneous freedom movement in 1989 was in fact a coup d'etat orchestrated from Moscow, in offices of the Russian KGB.
Perhaps for the first time in known history, we have walked through a revolution without realizing who are the real winners and losers.
The consequences are far reaching and people in the West seem to have a short memory...
