Plot synopsis
BBC Russia follows Lenin’s train journey from Zurich to the Revolution. Most Russians are familiar with the reference to the “sealed railway carriage” in which Lenin travelled via Germany to Petrograd where, at the railway station, he climbed an armoured car to rally people to seize power. However arguments continue to this day about that eight-day journey which changed the course of the world history. Was Lenin’s carriage “sealed”? How did the Bolsheviks use Germany - and how did Germany use them? Was Lenin a “German spy” as his detractors labelled him at the time? The film seeks the answers to these questions, using archive materials and featuring historians. Short Q&A and talk: “Why is the Revolution Centenary mostly ignored in Russia and by Russian filmmakers?”
