THREE SONGS ABOUT LENIN (1934):

Three Songs of Lenin is a non-narrative documentary celebrating Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, founding leader of the Soviet state, who had died 10 years earlier in 1924. It follows a tripartite structure, organized around folk songs written for Lenin. Part one focuses on the Soviet “liberation” of Muslim women in Uzbekistan. Part two eulogizes Lenin, featuring footage of his funeral, his public appearances, and even the only existing sound clip from one of his speeches. Finally, part three expands its scope to commend the breadth of achievement in Soviet society.

DVD-R has Russian intertitles with switchable English and German subtitles. Approx. 60 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!

SALT FOR SVANETIA (1930):

Most of Salt for Svanetia describes and explores the daily life of the Svan people, who are living isolated from civilisation in a harsh natural environment in the mountainous region of Svanetia. The film starts with the Leninist quotation, "Even now there are far reaches of the Soviet Union where the patriarchal way of life persists along with remnants of the clan system." Svanetia and the mountain village of Ushguli are then located on two slowly dissolving maps of the region and are described as "cut off from civilization by mountains and glaciers". The introductory focus on class conflict fades, as the film moves to concentrate on the daily routine of the villagers.
