Plot synopsis
Leninland is the “last” museum devoted to Lenin, built on the site where the renowned leader died. Now it’s the site of forlorn memories and of the museum’s employees’ desire for the Russian citizens to revisit the positive impact Lenin had on his constituency. Struggling to convince patrons to not focus solely on Lenin’s controversial concepts and suggestions about communism, the museum’s employees encourage their countrymen to remember the politician for his forward-thinking philosophies and for his dedication to the betterment of his nation.

Selected in the following festivals :
- Festival des Films de Russie et d'Ailleurs, Geneva - Lausanne (Switzerland), 2014
