The Soviet View: A Major Archive Comes Online

March 13, 2017

The British Film Institute is collaborating with an imprint of SAGE Publishing to issue a three-part set of rare film footage, Socialism on Film: The Cold War and International Propaganda. The BFI National Archive, and Adam Matthew, an imprint of SAGE Publishing, which issues digital primary source collections for the humanities and social sciences, to publish the series, have selected documentary films, features, and newsreels captured by film makers from the former USSR, Vietnam, Cuba, China, the former German Democratic Republic (East Germany), and Eastern Europe. Much of it has previously been unavailable in the West, some because it was banned from general release in Britain.
