Dir. Alexander Dovzhenko (1930). Drafted to make a movie on rural collectivization, Dovzhenko produced a myth—the creation of the kolkhoz as part of a cosmic cycle of birth and death. This enraptured, startlingly aestheticized tractor-paean, released amid the campaign to liquidate the kulaks, is ultimately a pagan saga made to celebrate a tragic social experiment.
