PROTSESS THE TRIAL

Sergei Loznitsa has scoured Russian archives once again and assembled a montage of a Stalinist show trial. His material: eleven days of spectacle for the masses, meticulously staged, documented in minute detail. The Soviet Union in 1930: the New Economic Policy has reached a dead end. The accused, the so-called “party of industry”, professors and engineers, must serve as scapegoats for its failure. The courtroom is filled beyond capacity. The accused plead guilty. Outside, the crowd fervidly demands that the saboteurs be put to death. A roundelay of finger pointing gives birth to the most fanciful of conspiracy theories. The firing squad darts into the room upon announcement of the verdict. Or is that too only for show?
