Summary

In the charged atmosphere of post-revolution, artistic and political forces often join in the effort to re-imagine a new national space for a liberated people. In this book, Joshua Malitsky examines nonfiction film and nation building to better understand documentary film as a tool used by the state to create powerful historical and political narratives. Drawing on newsreels and documentaries produced in the aftermath of the Russian revolution in 1917 and the Cuban revolution in 1959, Malitsky demonstrates the ability of nonfiction film to help shape the new citizen and unify, edify, and modernize the society as a whole. Post-Revolution Non-Fiction Film not only provides a critical historical view of the politics, rhetoric, and aesthetics shaping post-revolution Soviet and Cuban culture, but also provides a framework for understanding the larger political and cultural implications of documentary and nonfiction film.
