Marina Goldovskaya has a problem with Stalin.The Russian filmmaker is now head of the documentary film program at UCLA. She travels back and forth between Los Angeles and Russia with many protgs and projects in the works.In 1987, her cameras were rolling during an extraordinary moment, as freedom dawned to light up the darkest corners of the totalitarian nightmare that gripped her country.Three of her films shown last week in Santa Fe added up to a one-woman truth and reconciliation commission for the fallen soviet empire.The essence of the films is not only the timing and the subject, but also the pitch-perfect way her stories are photographed and composed – with passion, but without acrimony or personal rhetoric.Goldovskaya took many risks within the chaos of the late ‘80s, the Soviet Union began to come apart.
