Storyline

The Invisible Front was the code name used by the Soviet Interior Forces for the armed resistance in the occupied territories of the former Soviet Union. This resistance sprang to life without almost any outside support in 1940 and again in 1944, continuing in various forms, armed and unarmed, until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. This is the story of one of the twentieth centuries most significant anti-soviet resistance movements, told through the words and experiences of one of its leaders, Juozas Luksa and his fellow Forest Brothers. The documentary seeks to provide an understanding of the dynamics of the armed and unarmed underground resistance through interviews and first time access to never been seen before archival footage. Its a ground breaking film of a dying heritage. We have conducted over 50 on camera interviews, including dignitaries such President Adamkus of Lithuania and President Zatlers of Latvia, CIA operatives and US government officials, as well as the many ...

Touching Documentary of the Lithuanian Resistance
1 May 2015 | by dansandiniSee all my reviews

9 out of 10. Much more than the story of the underground resistance in Lithuania: this is a love story. It's the story of one man, Luksa, who never gave up his love for one woman, nor his quest to liberate his country from the tyrannical boot of the Soviet Union. Ohman captures something here. In interviews of palpable candor, coupled with top notch cinematography and a heart touching score, he conveys the barest essence of man's true yearning to be free. This was a story I had never heard of. How is it that it's not being told in American history classes. How sad and tragic that alternatively Communism is being taught in Universities all across America. Not to be missed. Streams on Netflix.
