Historical Inquiry: Primary Source Analysis

consists of twelve digitally manipulated excerpts from archival footage created in Russia between 1917 and 1939. Some of the clips come form the recordings of major historical events, such as the army mutiny during the February revolution, or Moscow show trials, while others show day-to-day life: subway builders posing for a photograph, inmates dancing at Solovki’s labor camp, etc.
