Movies from the Soviet Era
("Kukolka" (Little doll) is a little gem of the Soviet Cinema, set in the momentous history-changing time - the late 1980s - during perestroika, glasnost and the last years of the Soviet Union. The heroine, 16 year old ex-world champion gymnast, is powerfully played by real-life master of sport Svetlana Zasypkina, on whose life the film is loosely based.)
1992 Soviet Training Documentary NEW!
Aired before the 1992 Olympics. Features both the men's and women's team. In the french language.
1991 Training Session at Round Lake.
(A two hour video recording of a training session at Round Lake back in 1991 just before the Soviet Union broke up. In this video, you can see gymnasts such as Boggi, Lacshenova, Lysenko, Kotchektova (does three double layouts in one Floor Exercise.), and many more! The recording was done at the same time visitors were at Round Lake recording footage for what later would be for a documentary by A&E called "More Than a Game." This was probably meant to be footage for the documentary.)
