The Soviet Revolution Told Through its Cinema
German (Germany) French
Russia rocked the beginning of the 20th century with two revolutions. One took place in politics, the other in cinema. It was thanks to her that film was reinvented.
The two decades following the Russian revolution are marked by a gang of young people who profoundly influenced Russian Cinema. This artistic revolution was led by directors, actors, technicians and poets. They are the characters and voices of our film. The Soviet Actress, Ada Voistik, and its camrades tell us the story of this unique period, through the images of soviet fictional works produced between 1917 and 1934. We can thus catch a glimpse of their fight for a new society, where creative freedom was of utmost importance.
