TSAR TO LENIN
Herman AXELBANK (1937)
Film to be followed by a debate with CHRIS MARSDEN, National Secretary of the Socialist Equality Party
Tsar To Lenin, first released in 1937, ranks among the twentieth century's greatest film documentaries. It presents an extraordinary cinematic account of the Russian Revolution – from the mass uprising which overthrew the centuries-old Tsarist regime in February 1917, to the Bolshevik-led insurrection eight months later that established the first socialist workers' state, and the final victory in 1921 of the new Soviet regime over counter-revolutionary forces after a three-year-long civil war.
Based on archival footage assembled over more than a decade by the legendary Herman Axelbank (1900 – 1979), Tsar To Lenin provides an unparalleled film record of a revolutionary movement, embracing millions, which 'shook the world' and changed the course of history.
STARTS AT 7.30 PM, Thursday 27th April
The film is 63 mins long
