Abstract

In this paper, I will examine an excerpt from the first Soviet film reconstruction of the 1917 February Revolution, Esfir’ Shub’s The Fall of the Romanov Dynasty (1927). My purpose is to provide a specific example of how, by means of cinema, Bolshevik propaganda related to the subject of women’s involvement in the 1917 upheavals in Russia. The analysis of this fragment will serve as an illustration of how the initiative of women’s organizations was played down in the early Soviet mass culture, and how their history was left out of the process through which an official, public memory of 1917 Russian Revolution was finally brought into existence.
