This is a teaser for the feature length documentary Our Africa by Alexander Markov
2015, Germany, Russia
1957. The Soviets arrive on the African continent to build socialism, bringing money, Marxist ideas, manpower and film crews. At home, audiences from Vilnius to Vladivostok enthusiastically applaud exotic newsreels about “Our Africa”. Now, decades later, the Soviet-African endeavor seems long forgotten, yet thousands of kilometers of film stock remain.
