To see socialism realistically, Mikhail Švejcer wanted to seize this opportunity after the unmasking of the "personality cult" in 1956. In his film adaptation of a novel by Vladimir Tendrjakov, collectivized agriculture is a complicated business in which false ambition can cause a lot of damage. Švejcer had to re-edit this atmospheric, almost gloomy, film, immediately into a version that shows the party in a better light. A restored version came into the cinemas not until Perestroika times in 1988.

On Oct. 14 with an introduction by Naum Kleiman and Artiom Sopin.
