This animated Soviet brevity, excised from the twenty-first episode of Dziga Vertov's Kino-Pravda series, dwells on the anniversary of the death of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. This particular sequence highlights a handful of developments in the U.S.S.R. at the time that the film was completed.

The message was not entirely clear to me. My best guess is this: After Lenin’s death the USSR and the CPSU were mainstreamed, becoming less revolutionary and less proletarian, changes that indicated success of Lenin’s project but failure of Soviet society to achieve the ideal that Lenin had believed in. Thus, Lenin would have called the post-Lenin USSR a sell-out.

Dear Mr. Stalin,

Please don't shoot any arrows into my eyes.
