PRISONERS OF CONSCIENCE

UK, 1978 (MIFF 1979)

Director: Maurice Kanareck

This human rights film looks at the plight of Russian Jews who apply for visas for Israel and are refused. Because of the impossibility of filming it as a documentary in Russia, the film is in the form of a drama-documentary set in present day England.
