Abstract

In this avant-garde silent film, acclaimed director Alexander Dovzhenko documents the demobilization of Ukraine and its embrace of the Bolshevik Revolution after World War I. Timosh, a veteran and factory worker, views Ukrainian independence skeptically but joins its first congress representing the Bolsheviks. He joins with the workers against the bourgeoisie in their armed uprising, a fight against the ongoing devastation of their people.
