Into Oblivion

Mrtvá trat

Directed by Šimon Špidla
Czech Republic, Russia, 2011


With a single pencil stroke, Stalin indicated the line where he wanted a railway through the inhospitable frozen landscape. For four years, 80.000 Gulag prisoners were put to work in horrendous conditions. The death of Stalin was their liberation. Špidla goes looking for witnesses from that period.
