Abstract

A vitally important nationa-building project filmed before the Cultural Revolution, this model opera retells the history of the Communist Part in China from 1921 to 1949. The film helped to cement the cult of personality surrounding Mao Zedung and eerily parallels Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will.
