Directed by Alexandr Rogozhkin
Set in a provincial
town in Russia, this disturbingly realistic film depicts the slaughter of the political
enemies of the Bolsheviks. In 1917, C.H.E.K.A., the secret police predecessor of the
KGB, unleashed a reign of terror on all those considered enemies of the revolution. We
watch, stunned, as the Cheka officers round-up all people who are in any way contrary to
the Bolshevik agenda (Christians, Jews, former aristocrats etc.) and execute them.
Russian with English subtitles.
