Three Songs of Lenin
Ten years after the death of V. I. Lenin in 1924, Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov celebrates the man and his legacy in this three-part propagandistic documentary. The first section depicts the triumph of Communism over Islam through education for women and automated agriculture. The second looks back at the period of mourning that followed Lenin's death. The triumphant final section showcases the Soviet Union's rapid social and technological advances in the decade after the leader's passing.
