Share TSAR TO LENIN (1937)

Event Details


Herman AXELBANK (1937)

Image result for books written by lenin


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

Upon leaving the cinema, please make a donation to cover some of our costs and to support your film club.

Please DO NOT book a seat if you are not sure of your availability; each booking reduces the number of seats available to others. If you cannot attend, please cancel your reservation as soon as possible by going to "MY TICKETS" on the Eventbrite confirmation email: this will release your seat to someone else.
