Arsenal Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The Arsenal features [[Performer~P69245~Semyon Svashenko~semensvashenko]] as Tyrnish, a humble Ukranian soldier. Through Tyrnish's experiences we are permitted to witness the incredible social upheavals of the World War I years which led to the Russian revolution. The film's setpiece is the 1918 Kiev worker's rebellion. The White Russian troops are clearly the villains of the piece--faceless automatons who blindly follow orders while flesh-and-blood types like Tyrnsh suffer hope, fear and anguish. Arsenal was the first of [[Performer~P88158~Alexandre Dovzhenko~alexanderdovzhenko]]'s Ukraine trilogy, followed by [[Feature~V173718~Earth~earth]] (1930) and [[Feature~V169718~Ivan~ivan]] (1932). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
