“Gulag” is Russian for the government agency that operated a network of forced-labor camps during the Soviet era between 1918 and 1960. During those decades, millions from political dissidents to common criminals passed through the system, of whom over 500,000 died. Among those who survived are a group of women who decided to share their experience in the camps for the camera.
