Anna: 6 - 18 or (Russian: Анна: от 6 до 18, translit. Anna ot 6 do 18) is a documentary film by director Nikita Mikhalkov, which was shot during a period of thirteen years, from 1980 to 1993. The main heroine of the film is Anna, the eldest daughter of Mikhalkov. Anna herself has repeatedly said that she strongly disliked the picture, explaining that she considers it a "dissection of her private life" and "exhibitionism of the soul".[1]


Over the years of her life (from 6 to 18 years) daughter of film director Anna answers the same questions about his father. The viewer has the opportunity to observe how Anna's point of view changes concerning her surrounding world. The girl's answers are edited with newsreel footage of those years during which the questions were asked. Through the prism of Anna's responses many key events are represented: the death of General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev, Yuri Andropov, Konstantin Chernenko, the restructuring and the collapse of the Soviet Union.
