Plot synopsis
Perm-36 is a documentary by Sergei Katchkin on political repression in the USSR through the history of the Perm-36 labor camp.
The film is based on the testimonies of three former political prisoners: Sergei Kovalev, Mikhail Meilakh and Viktor Pestov.

However, communo-patriotic activists fervently opposed the existence of the museum and the forum. Over time, they even manage to attract the attention of the general public and the authorities. The future becomes increasingly dark for the museum ...
