The life of Boris Pasternak-crowned by a Nobel Prize he dared not accept-is a story of success soured by political oppression. Drawing on previously unavailable footage, this program parts what was the Iron Curtain to profile the renowned author, from his early achievements as an upcoming avant-garde poet to the humiliations and threats heaped upon him, late in life, as a result of writing the internationally acclaimed novel Dr. Zhivago. Archival interviews with contemporaries and film clips of Pasternak himself provide insights into the world of a talented writer stifled by Socialist Realism and nearly destroyed by his own masterpiece.
