            Abandoned in an Adelaide orphanage at the age of seven, Sophia feels betrayed by her mother, Helen. In early adulthood, Sophia still feels angry and resentful. Her mother is now married with two more children. Sophia rejects her new family and refuses contact with her mother. In her twenties, Sophia is now a filmmaker living in far away Sydney, embracing her independence but deep down, blaming her mother when things go wrong in her life. Yet Sophia finds herself drawn back to her mother’s life, using Helen’s stories as inspiration for her films but disguising them as fiction. Thirty years on, Helen has dementia. Sophia starts to question their deeply troubled relationship. She digs out an unfinished documentary film about Helen that she’d started as a film student years before and finds herself compelled to finish it. Returning to her mother’s former homeland of Eastern Poland in what is now Ukraine, Sophia begins to trace her mother’s traumatic childhood. Orphaned as a young girl, Helen grows up in a rural Polish village. As an adolescent, she’s illiterate and homeless, somehow surviving on the streets. As Sophia re-examines her mother’s life, she discovers the historical truth behind Helen’s deportation to a Siberian gulag. Helen was one of almost two million Poles who were incarcerated in Russian gulags during World War Two. The truth behind this little known episode of history reveals a dark story of betrayal involving Stalin and the Allies. Miraculously given their freedom, Helen is part of a vast exodus of Poles who travel from Russia with no food or organised transport. Over months, they trek thousands of miles to Uzbekistan and eventually, freedom in Persia. Most of the Poles perish on this treacherous journey. Helen is one of the few survivors and she’s sent to a Polish refugee camp in Lusaka, Africa. Here she meets Valdiero, the love of her life, an Italian prisonerof-war who becomes Sophia’s father. Finally, a decade after leaving Poland, Helen and her baby daughter arrive in Australia as refugees. Not long afterwards, she abandons Sophia in an orphanage. With growing insight, Sophia starts to re-assess the troubled relationship with her mother. But as Helen slips out of reach, Sophia must confront her own demons. Did she ever truly know this woman who became her mother? Does she have it in her heart to forgive her? And is it too late? *INTERNATIONAL AWARDS* AUDIENCE AWARD, Krakow Film Festival, Poland TIME OF HISTORY AWARD, Valladolid International Film Festival, Spain PRESIDENT’S AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING HUMAN VALUES, 26th Polish Film Festival in America, Chicago SPECIAL AWARD ‘Niepokorni, Niezlomni, Wiekleci’ Film Festival Gdynia, Poland PRIZE, 'Cinema With A Soul', Warsaw BEST NON-FEATURE FILM, Ann Arbor Polish Film Festival, USA FINALIST, FIPA Festival Biarritz, In Competition *AUSTRALIAN AWARDS* BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY, Australian Directors Guild Awards AUDIENCE AWARD BEST DOCUMENTARY, Adelaide Film Festival AUDIENCE AWARD BEST FILM, Canberra International Film Festival BEST MUSIC IN DOCUMENTARY, CEZARY SKUBISZEWSKI, Australian Screen Music Awards BEST DOCUMENTARY BIOGRAPHY, ATOM Awards BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY Nomination, AACTA Awards BEST SOUND Nomination, AACTA Awards BEST EDITING DOCUMENTARY Nomination, Australian Screen Editors Guild FINALIST Sydney Film Festival Documentary Competition

              The most durable dictators in twentieth-century Europe were Communists dictators. The final lecture in the series shows how Stalin established the pattern of Communist dictatorship, and asks how far the 'cult of personality' survived the process of 'destalinization' that followed his death in 1953. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-age-of-dictatorship-europe-1918-1989-stalin-and-his-imitators Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

                A woman has nursed a terrible secret for a quarter century. She has suffered a loss so painful and devastating that her will to live and believe in others is waning. The light of hope flickers dimly. Into her life come two new neighbors. A single divorced father and his teenage son. They have also known sadness, yet still manage to cling to the belief of goodness in the world. From this fragile friendship unfolds an inspiring life-affirming story. After 25 years a desperate effort to reclaim the past is mounted from America to the old country. And with it go the hopes of three generations to find happiness. “Family in the Old Country” is the first full-length feature from Alpha Vision Films. It was filmed between February and July of 2011 from an original screenplay by director James Overton. The locations are the historic Basic City district of Waynesboro, Va., standing in for New Jersey 1970. And also, in the third act as our players make the transition to France, the Inn at Osceola Mill in Steele’s Tavern, Va., and The Staunton Virginia National Memorial Cemetery. In addition to being the longest motion picture from Alpha Vision Films, it also features one of the largest cast, introducing several new actors to the stock company.

                    "Letters from D-Day was, as you might expect, a three-sofa job. That’s like a three-hanky job, but you sob directly into the sofa to save time.” The Guardian "Intensely emotional slice of social history....utterly arresting." Mail on Sunday "An intimate view of one of the 20th century's key moments...sobering, moving and beautifully read." Sunday Telegraph “All it took to bring any audience to tears were the words on the page.” Daily Mail “A dignified re-telling....It was a simple idea that brought an original, emotionally engaging hook to a TV subject area currently in danger of becoming swamped.” The Telegraph

                      In this webinar, recorded November 17, 2011, William R Thomas discusses justice in the context of war-fighting. Should there be restrictions on weapons or tactics? Is there a workable distinction between combatants and non-combatants? To answer these questions we need to ask what the goals of war-fighting are and how justice in wartime differs from justice in the normal context of life. The 64-minute webinar recording consists in 34-minute audio presentation and slide show by William R Thomas. Then Thomas discusses questions from the audience for the remaining 30 minutes.
