Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives
OSA’s non-circulating Film Library holds an unparalleled range of classic and rare fiction and nonfiction works in almost 100 languages, among them documentary, propaganda, and educational films related to Soviet and East European history and culture, focusing on the Cold War, Communism, and totalitarianism, as well as international human rights abuses and war crimes. The Library also contains all films submitted to the Verzio International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival.
Our films come from various sources, from individual donors, national film and television archives, and public vendors. Some have English subtitles, while others are available only in their original languages.
