Abstract:

When Lenin's Bolsheviks stormed the Winter Palace in 1917, they did so in the name of a new ideology. Millions were drawn by its promise. In this film the people who were there--from members of the Red Guard to party activists to students--explain how Communism appealed to their deepest hopes and dreams. Through them, we hear how Communist leadership, under Vladimir Lenin and later, Joseph Stalin, compromised the proletarian ideal--and how hope eventually gave way to despair.
