Abstract:

The German invasion of Russia transformed Stalin from one of Hitler's allies to one of Britians, and made necessary the production of pro-Soviet propaganda films such as 'Mission To Moscow' and 'Song of Russia' This example takes place in a Ukrainian farming village, where ordinary people are determined to resist the foreign aggressors. Highly artifical, it portrays pre-war village life as an endless round of singing, dancing, picnicking, and accordion-playing, whereas in reality, the pre-war years in the Ukraine saw several million in the countryside starve to death during the artificial famine which was part of Stalin's forcible collectivization policy. The film was later disowned by its makers and retitled.
