A fascinating in-depth profile on the leader of the Russian Revolution and one of the fathers of Communism.

Beloved leader of Russia, father of Communism and legendary philosopher Vladimir Lenin is one of the best known figures in Russian history. Yet almost 80 years after his death, much of what we think we know about Lenin is shrouded in mystery and intrigue. This remarkable collection of programmes, never seen before on DVD, sheds new light on the life and times of one of Russia’s most famous sons. Step inside the life of Vladimir Lenin: Rebel. Reformer. Revolutionary.

Includes:

Lenin: An Anatomy of a Legend Parts 1 & 2 Vladimir Ulyanov (Lenin) to this day is one of the most complex figures in Russian history. The author of the film, Vasily Pichul, analyses the myths and legends connected with the life of this great communist leader: from hagiographic films of the Soviet era to criminal songs and cartoons.

Who Shot Lenin?

There were numerous attempts to murder the Soviet empire’s idol. The most famous offense was committed by Fanny Kaplan, a halfblind and senile woman, who was appropriately deemed, ‘the blind sniper.’ Lenin’s real enemies were much closer to him, in the rows of his supporters. Did new-generation communists try to murder their beloved leader?

• A fascinating collection of programmes that provide a detailed account of one of Russia’s most famous historical figures.

• The featured programmes were produced for Russian Television and have never before been released on DVD.
