Synopsis

As part of the process of reforming (or “re-forging”) the class enemies into Bolsheviks, the Soviet authorities conceived the Gulag as a “museum” where prisoners were displayed as specimens in extinction: the aristocrat, the landlord, the bourgeois and the criminal. The shock wave generated by the drastic re-forging of human material opens a gap to the present.
