Portrait of the Soviet Union
Part One, Mother Russia

According to the LA Times (1988), "Portrait of the Soviet Union" may be Ted Turner's “crowning achievement,” “a seven-hour documentary of panoramic sweep,” surely “the most beautiful and comprehensive cultural history of old Russia and the Soviet Union ever to appear on American TV.” Unfortunately, the Times warns, “it also projects a view through Red-colored glasses, one that maximizes Soviet strengths and minimizes Soviet weaknesses, one that disappoints even as it dazzles.” We will assume everyone has heard about the gulag and the purges from their High School Civics Teachers, and proceed to take another view. This is Part 1, we will schedule the rest when we have breaks in our schedule.

Sun, April 23, 2017: 10:30am to 12:30pm

About Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library
