Abstract:

Alexander Solzhenitsy's 1970 Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech is the text for this program, which exhorts viewers to shoulder their responsibilities as citizens to fight untruth, injustice, and repression wherever they arise and before they become too powerful to overcome. Never delivered because he was not permitted to leave the Soviet Union in time, the speech is read by Solzhenitsyn in Russian (in the English version by actor Tom Courtenay). Using Solzhenitsy's prison camp experience as a point of departure, the film moves rapidly outward to involve all of those who have suffered violence, and those who have allowed others to suffer. "The world is overrun by the brazen conviction that force can do everything, while justice can do nothing," says the author. With governments and citizens subscribing to a double standard of justice one for themselves and one for "the others," one for the rich and one for the poor, one for the powerful and one for the powerless it becomes necessary for each of us to stand up and be counted. A Russian aphorism becomes the emblem of this message: "One word of truth outweighs the whole world."
