Abstract

Lenin’s most famous statement on the cinema, which could be construed as a manifesto itself, comes from an interview he did with Anatoli Lunacharsky in 1922, where he stated: “Among the people you are reported to be a patron of art so you must remember that of all the arts for us the cinema is most important.” This importance is reflected in the nationalizing of the film and photo industries, which is outlined here as the primary role of the cinema in the nascent USSR.
