Dziga Vertov & Yelizaveta Svilova - Man with a Movie Camera (1929)

"Roaring Twenties Soviet Union in 1929. Brought to life with AI. Filmed largely in Odessa, Ukraine. Not exactly the image which history has left us of the former USSR.

"For some more affluent women, there was fashion, parties, bobbed hair, makeup and the ubiquitous cloche hat so popular with girls across the globe in the 1920's. The position and roles of women in the USSR, in principle at least, were equal to men under the Soviet Constitution. The reality for the vast majority was very different. Millions ended up in gulags and a totalitarian system remained in place until the late 80's."
