Synopsis:

Hosted by Terraco / Gendell Family Foundation

No single person symbolizes Refuseniks, Soviet Jews who fought against anti-Semitism and for their freedom, more than Natan Sharansky, our very special guest at the 2019 Festival. From Slavery to Freedom follows this human rights activist/author/politician/Jewish Agency leader/Israeli Prize Laureate/ 2020 Genesis Prize Winner and recipient of the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom from 1977—when he was arrested on charges of spying for the U.S., treason and anti-Soviet agitation—through his nine years in a Soviet prison (much in solitary confinement) and ultimate release (with a global campaign led by his wife Avital) which paved the way for all Soviet Jews. The film crew, which gained permission from Moscow to film in sensitive locations, was accompanied by Sharansky as they delved into era where there was an overwhelming sense of fear and insecurity in the face of the system.
