AELITA AELITA – QUEEN OF MARS

In Russia the revolution is nearing an end, the Soviet Union is rising from the ruins of the old state. In the midst of these days of upheaval, a mysterious radio message reaches various military radio outposts all across the Earth. The engineer Loss interprets it as a message from Mars and is derided for his hypothesis. However, he ultimately sets off to the red planet, where a brutal ruling class holds the populace in virtual slavery. Alas, in the middle of an extra-terrestrial workers' revolution, the boundaries between dream and reality begin to blur. Early science fiction, in which the hammer and sickle liberate more than just the Earthly realm.

With a soundtrack by Uwe Oberg.
