An interesting look at Soviet revolutionary films. The text is in German but the bulk of the book comprises some often-striking photos from the films. The author, A.W. Lunatscharsky (1875-1933 and sometimes rendered as Lunacharsky), was People's Commissar of Education Enlightenment.There are actually 74 images in the book, not 64 mentioned on the cover or 67 on the title page.
