WWI and the Russian Revolution
It’s important to note that cultural production voicing resistance and falling support for the Great War was not one held by every country. Russia’s cultural production during the war concerned itself more with winning the battle within it’s own borders, as a revolution was taking place between the Tsarist regime and working class. As evidenced by the film, “The Battleship Potemkin,” the Russians envisioned a world in which equality among all social classes was the only thing worth fighting for. This film remains an excellent source of revolutionary propaganda and was intended to incense the repressed Bolsheviks of Russia into fighting the Tsarist regime for their freedom. “The Battleship Potemkin,” in conclusion is certainly evidence that Russia, and the rise of the communism, was on a different path than the rest of the world at this time. While other nations sought for assimilation and peace after World War I, Russia sought to spread their communist idealogy.
