For two decades after the Russian Revolution, a group of young directors, actors, technicians, and poets shocked the world of cinema. Essentially composed of images taken from soviet cinema from 1917 to 1934, this film takes us back to a unique time where the artists unveil their fight for a new society, where the freedom to create is paramount. However, this desire, this utopia, quickly became trapped by an authoritarian regime which would silence the voice of cinema, much like the rest of society. This polished work transforms characters of fiction into protagonists in a narrative that binds together imagination, reality, and history. L'Utopie des images de la Révolution russe has been selected for various international festivals, including the Venice Film Festival in 2017.
