900 Days

In 900 DAYS, survivors of the 2nd World War Siege of Leningrad finally dare to talk about their personal memories.

Is it better to acknowledge the unpalatable truth, or to embrace the comfort of myth? This film presents an emotional picture of the struggle of some survivors, whose personal memories are overshadowed by the heroic myth held up by the authorities. And it reveals the horrific truth that they were forbidden to talk about for all these years.
