Vladimir Bukovskyin East and West ' For the average Westerner the life of the Soviet citizen - not just his physical life but more importantly, his moral life, is a complete mystery.'
By December 1976, VLADIMIR BUKOVSKY had spent over half of his adult life in prison. Then he crossed borders, from the Soviet Union to the West, from captivity to freedom, from obscurity to fame. Since coming to the West he has given hundreds of interviews but, as he says, ' how can I explain in a few minutes an experience which takes up the lifetimes of millions of people? ' In this film he attempts to explain what the interviews never tell.
Using documentary footage, archive material and dramatised inserts, Crossing Borders is Bukovsky's comparison of the two societies, their differences and their similarities.
