Red AfricaAlexander Markov

After their independence in the early 1960s, a load of Soviet ambassadors descends on some young African nations to express their enthusiastic support and offer assistance in the technical, social and cultural development of the country. All under the banner of equality and brotherhood. An extraordinary mosaic film made exclusively with Soviet archival (propaganda) material, a fascinating collage that slowly but surely reveals the underlying objectives of the Red Empire in this friendly invasion.
