YouTube of the Whenever: The Last Days of Soviet Russia: The Reckoning (Part 1)

Here's a little-known gem from YouTube: a college Economics student's project about the fall of the Soviet Union. In this 3-part movie, a disgruntled nail factory worker (who looks an awful lot like my friend Danny from Pokemon League) obtains a video camera and sets out to make a documentary film exposing the Soviet Union's glaring economic problems. Along the way, he talks to peasants in Ukraine and city-folk in Moscow, who express their complaints candidly. All the while, the KGB is hot on his tail - sorta.

Will our hero succeed in his task, or will the KGB catch him in the act? Stay tuned for Part 2 in a few days!
