Young, eccentric Ukrainian artist Fedor Alexandrovich was just four years old when the Chernobyl disaster struck, but the event had a profound effect on him. In seeking to learn more about what happened at the nuclear plant, Fedor becomes fascinated with the Duga—a massive, Soviet-constructed radio antenna near the Chernobyl site that remains shrouded in mystery.

Fedor discovers the Duga was one of the USSR’s secret Cold War weapons built to penetrate Western communications systems and, possibly, minds. He arrives at a terrifying conclusion that not only explains the radio antenna’s role in the disaster but also lays bare the cruelty inflicted on Ukraine by its Russian neighbors. Fedor must decide if he will protect his family and himself, or tell the world what he believes. In the package of a paranoid thriller, The Russian Woodpecker takes us to the frontlines of the Revolution, and gives us the history and context for the war between Russia and the Ukraine, a battle that will have ramifications for the whole world.

It’s an all too familiar story – a peaceful protest fueled by a deep desire for change becomes a violent battle for basic human rights. In the past few years, we’ve witnessed the rise of revolutions in Egypt, in Spain, and in the US, but on the opening night of the Fall season of Stranger Than Fiction, we had a front row seat to an uprising in The Ukraine, and a country’s struggle for independence, freedom, and a better future.

WNYC Doc of the Week

Many stories get told about Mount Everest, but the film SHERPA stands apart for focusing on the local guides from Nepal who take the biggest risks. Director Jennifer Peedom bears witness to the tragic 2014 avalanche that killed 16 Sherpas and changed the dynamics on the mountain.

Laurie Anderson Collection

“Documentaries for me are maps of other worlds, places I couldn’t have imagined. I am happiest when I am suddenly in a place I don’t recognize at all. Something I don’t quite understand at first is going on there. These places look real enough to be actual places but because they are often mixtures of memory, facts and ideas they sometimes look more like dreamscapes. The films I have chosen for this small collection are all about places and they raise big questions having to do with wonder, memory, maps and reality. All of them play with disorientation and although the people who move through them are real enough it is the places themselves that have the real magic for me.”

– Laurie Anderson, Filmmaker, Musician & Artist

Watch them all, plus gain access to archive of dozens of great documentaries for only $4.99.

Discounted group rates are available for all STF screenings. Please contact [email protected] for further information.
