East Side Story

Though its films were rarely exhibited on the other side of the Iron Curtain, the prolific Soviet film industry churned out more than propagandistic documentaries and epic-length versions of 19th-century Russian novels. This documentary explores the musical comedy genre in the communist era, when, just as in Hollywood musicals, characters broke into elaborately stylized song and dance numbers mid-movie, the difference being that these characters sang in praise of collective farms and factories.
