Ordinary Fascism Part 1
Обыкновенный Фашизм

Directed by influential filmmaker, Mikhail Romm, Ordinary Fascism combines archive footage rescued from Nazi Germany and taken to Moscow, images from Hilter’s personal photographer Heinrich Hoffman and contemporary hidden camera quotidian footage of life in the USSR. Romm builds a shocking portrait of the banality of terror. Watched by over 40 million people on its release, it takes its cues from the groundbreaking compilation works of a much earlier Revolutionary filmmaker Esfir Shub.
