About This Show

Sophia Murashkovsky’s Shoot Them in the Cornfields is a fictionalized family history that time-trips between World War II, the Khruschev reign, and the heady days of the coup d’état of 1991. It is a first-person account of an aging Jewish woman, Yelena Levin, and her husband, Mikhail Levin, who were both banished to Butirka; one of the most notorious criminal prisons of the Soviet Union, for entrepreneurship during Nikita Khrushchev’s oppressive anti-intellectual reign in 1958.
Yuri Joffe directs.
