A special screening of the film and a meeting with its author Darya Violina (Moscow) is being organized jointly with the Tula branch of the Memorial Society. Admission is free, but registration in advance is necessary. Register at

The film is dedicated to the lives of children of persecuted parents. It is based on stories told by people who managed to survive, not to give way to fear, and to preserve the memory of the past. Among others, the film tells about Chingiz Aitmatov, Tamara Petkevich, and Azary Plisetsky.

In 2013, Longer Than Life was selected as the best documentary film at the Stalker International Human Rights Film Festival.

“If our film touches the feelings of both our filmmaker colleagues and of ordinary spectators that is due primarily to the сredit of our film’s characters. And it is not only due to their dramatic and at times truly tragic fates, but also to their outstanding personalities. And I am happy that we managed to convey to the audience our sincere love and endless respect for them,” says the director Darya Violina.
