Stalin? Why Not
Stalin, pochemu niet?, Russia, 2010, 14 min, DVD, Politics, Society
In 2009, after renovating the underground station Kurskaja in Moscow, also the lines of the Soviet anthem from 1943 regained its old splendour: Through storms the sun of freedom has shined upon us / And the great Lenin has lighted the way / Stalin has taught us faithfulness to the people / To labour, and inspired us to great feats! The authors of the film ask ordinary passers-by and passengers on the underground, who Stalin was for them and how he is perceived nowadays. A large part of society does not believe the historical facts. Many dream of the dictator and great Russia. Stalin's cult is still alive.
