Product Overview

Unearthed from Moscow's legendary Soyuzmultfilm Studios (est. 1935), the 41 films in Animated Soviet Propaganda span sixty years of Soviet history (1924 - 1984), and have never been available before in the U.S.

The set is divided thematically into four discs, all dealing with different subjects of the Soviet propaganda machine.

American Imperialists contains seven films, almost all of which are drawn from the Cold War era. The recurring image is of the money hungry industrialist self-destructing because of his greed.

Fascist Barbarians is a 17 film reaction to the Nazi invasion of 1941. While Americans were mocked relentlessly, at least they remained human. After breaking the non-aggression pact and declaring war, the Nazis became animals in the propaganda films, turning into snarling warthogs and depraved vultures.

Capitalist Sharks contains six films that take on the bourgeoisie the world over - and sometimes beyond. In Interplanetary Revolution (1924), capitalists escaping to Mars discover the revolution has spread throughout the galaxy.

Onward to the Shining Future: Communism contains 11 works, most of which mythologize the state and envision the inevitable utopias of the future. Dziga Vertov's Soviet Toys (1924), however, offers criticism of the state. Generally agreed to be the first Russian animated film, it satirizes the communist members who cashed in on Lenin's New Economic Policy (NEP), which introduced a limited form of capitalist enterprise.

Containing 6 hours of rare material in all, this four-disc DVD set offers a fascinating look at the history of Soviet propaganda. It is an invaluable resource that displays how one of the greatest and most reclusive powers wanted their people to envision the rest of the world, as well as being an idiosyncratic tour through Russia's rich and varied history of animated art.
