The writer discusses the fate of Soviet film-makers who were banned during the Soviet era and how some managed to resume their careers after the Gorbachev era. Film-makers such as Kira Muratova and Alexander Sokurov were casualties of Soviet cinema repression but both have gone on to have remarkable postcensure productivity: Muratova in feature films, and Sokurov in the documentary genre. Also, the veteran film-maker Andrei Khrzhanovsky has now, after a wait of some 40 years, finally made his live-action debut, which is an extraordinary psychobiography of Nobel-laureate poet Joseph Brodsky.
