Anna Jermolaewa’s video Aleksandra Wysokinska / 20 Years Later tells her story as a democratic activist and Soviet refugee. This movie was produced as a reenactment 20 years after her escape from the Soviet Union to Austria. In Cracow, Jermolaewa meets the person who so selflessly helped her escape in 1989.
