Soviet Union/1930/75mins/no cert. Dir: Aleksandr Dovzhenko 

A silent poetic masterpiece depicting an idealistic vision of the possibilities of Communism, made just before Stalinism changed the focus of the Revolution. Depicting the Ukrainian peasantry’s journey into the age of collectivization, examining natural cycles through his epic montage, this highly innovative new electronic musical commission brings a modern edge to this timeless humanist masterpiece.

+ Live performance of a specially composed soundtrack by R.Seiliog, originally commissioned by Pontio.
