Kriegsbilder : Earth/Zemlya

Oleksandr Dovzhenko, UK, 1930
83 min., OmeU
Earth is the most famous Ukrainian film, a world cinema masterpiece, and a poetic film about collectivization in Ukraine at the end of the 1920s. The film tells about the creation of the first collective farm communes and class enmity: Vasyl, a member of the Komsomol, with the help of a local party organization, gets a tractor and plows private boundaries "on kulak fields". However, this enthusiasm will cost him dearly.

Screening in cooperation with This Human World Filmfestival and Kriegsbilder
