A Film About Anna Akhmatova

A film by Helga Landauer

Back
By the age of 25, Anna Akhmatova had been granted fate’s every conceivable gift - poetic talent, strenght of character, beauty and fame. She was then inundated with the tragedies of her century: the arrests and executions of loved ones, starvation, hardship, revolutions and wars, the Soviet terror. Akhmatova survived years of fear, isolation, betrayal. Some of her poems, too dangerous to commit to paper, survived for many years only as memorized by a few close friends.
Her victory is the core of the film.
