Signs Of The Time:
Expo 67 Montreal DVD
Classic Soviet propaganda film depicting life in the USSR in the 60ís. Using the Montreal Expo of 1967 as a starting and ending point, it aims to lift the lid on a place most Americans either did not know, or feared, because of the "Red scare" of the 1950's. The film explains how far the country has advanced technologically since the 1917 revolution -- in places like forbidding Siberia -- which is now home to "modern" cities, and where forestry efforts pave the way for hydro-electric power and the Trans-Siberia Pipeline. From there, the film boasts of the Soviet way of life: workers at an automotive plant share in higher profits; scientists are at the forefront of advances in medicine that help the world; families enjoy glorious days on sandy beaches; kids sing and dance at school. Also featured: the country's natural beauty, including Soviet Republics which are now independent -- Moldova and Armenia.
