Abstract

This popular propaganda film of the Soviet Realist era celebrates Vassilii Ivanovich Chapaev, a military hero of the Russian Civil War. Chapaev, an illiterate son of peasants, proves to be a brilliant strategist against the White Army. His friendship with Dimitry Furmanov reveals the central role of the Communist Party, a message the directors intentionally conveyed to support Stalin's nation-building.
