Product Description:
Capitalist Sharks: Soviet Animation vs. Greed and Ambition Video (DVD). Just as America envisioned Communist threats during much of the 20th century, the specter of capitalism loomed large in the Soviet Cold War psyche. This program surveys Soviet animated propaganda embodying that fiercely anti-capitalist spirit. Foreshadowing the space race, Interplanetary Revolution depicts a Communist triumph over free-market forces on Mars; China in Flames warns against capitalist interference in the Chinese Revolution; The Shareholder proclaims the superiority of the Soviet economic system; and Proud Little Ship takes on capitalist aggression. Eight films total, plus commentary from Russian State Film School professor Igor Kokarev and director and animator Fyodor Khitruk. (121 minutes) Portions are in Russian with English subtitles. The DVD version can be viewed using a DVD player or computer DVD-ROM drive.
