Vygotskian Psychology - A Documentary

This is a link to a documentary about Vygotsky's psychological theories in the Soviet Union according to the people who were there at the time. A lot of the talk is about Vygotsky and Leontev as people and academics, but there is also a fair amount of discussion about their theory of psychology and its relation to Marxism. The film lasts 1 hour 45 minutes and was made by Mark Rozin in 1992.
This is a very rare film, and may lack any sign of pizzaz, but the people interviewed and the ideas discussed are worth the time and concentration.
