Part 1 of a 4 DVD Set – Animated Soviet Propaganda
From 1924 to perestroika the USSR produced more than 4 dozen animated propaganda films. They weren’t for export. Their target was the new nation and their goal was to win over the hearts and minds of the Soviet people. Anti-American, Anti-Capitalist, Anti-Fascist (Anti-Hitler), some of these films are as artistically beautiful as the great political posters made after the 1917 revolution. A unique series. With a unique perspective. Includes interviews with the directors of the animated films which are still alive and commentary by a leading Soviet film scholar.
The 4 DVD set ‘Animated Soviet Propaganda’ can be purchased via Films By Jove.
