Synopsis

Unique, mostly unseen before, archive footage from March 1953, presents the funeral of Joseph Stalin as the culmination of the dictator’s personality cult. The news of Stalin’s death on March 5, 1953, shocked the entire Soviet Union. The burial ceremony was attended by tens of thousands of mourners. We observe every stage of the funeral spectacle, described by Pravda newspaper as “the Great Farewell”, and receive an unprecedented access to the dramatic and absurd experience of life and death under Stalin’s reign.

Sinopsis

Jedinstveni i uglavnom neviđeni arhivski snimci iz marta 1953. godine, o sahrani Jozefa Staljina kao kulminaciji kulta ličnosti jednog diktatora. Novosti o Staljinovoj smrti su 5. marta 1953. godine šokirale cjelokupan Sovjetski savez. Sahrani su prisustvovale desetine hiljada ožalošćenih. Posmatramo svaku fazu ovog grobnog spektakla, u Pravdi opisanog kao “veličanstveni oproštaj” i pristupamo nevjerovatnom dramatičnom i apsurdnom iskustvu života i smrti pod Staljinovim režimom.
