"The only thing I have for you today is Russian historical drama THE CORRIDOR OF IMMORTALITY (Коридор бессмертия), directed by Fyodor Popov, which aired in Russian cinemas a few months ago. It follows Leningrad schoolgirl Masha Yablochkina who, after the fierce winter blockade of 1941-1942 (when her hometown lost one million citizens to starvation, cold and bombardments under the siege of German and Finnish Nazis), trying to survive and gain strength, comes to the Russian railways and is sent to the construction of the Shlisselburg train line, which connects the city with the rest of the land and is in direct sight of German artillery. Under the guidance of machinist Georgy Fedorov, Masha and the rest of the heroes deliver cargo to besieged Leningrad, using all sorts of tricks to prevent the shelling of trains. The film reveals little known facts about the construction (mainly by women, as men were in war, and under constant shelling) and operation of the railway,which took the brunt of the transportation and delivered 75% of military equipment and food to the besieged city for years. A 33 kilometer railway was laid along the left bank of the Neva and the southern coast of Lake Ladoga between the stations of Shlisselburg and Polyany in 17 days and worked until the city was completely liberated in January 1944."
