Russian Jews: Part Two—1914 - 1948

Russian Jews: Part Two—1914 - 1948

Russian Jews: Film Two—1914 - 1948 captures a 30-year period of significant Jewish participation in every domain of Soviet political and cultural life including Leon Trotsky's role as the founder of the Red Army; artist Marc Chagall's early career; the first Soviet popular music stars; writers, with Isaac Babel in the lead, and other figures and fates, without which the grandiose Soviet ‘project’ is impossible to understand.

Watch the Russian Jews documentaries consecutively (in a single day), or across multiple sessions spread over three weeks. On Sunday, 19 Nov, at the Classic Cinemas, Elsternwick, After the Tears will be supplying a spread of delicious Eastern European treats to feast on between sessions. Nostrovia!
