Sergei Loznitsa / LT, NL, 2019 / 135 min.

In the tradition of his magnificent films on the heritage of the Soviet Union, Sergei Loznitsa once again draws on existing material. Over a period of four days in March 1953, every phase of the ceremony surrounding the funeral of Joseph Stalin was filmed.

Poster state funeral 2019
From the bombastic announcements of Stalin’s death on 4 March 1953, in newspapers and on posters and billboards, through the endless procession of sobbing mourners bidding a final farewell to their ‘red tsar’, to his ceremonial entombment in the mausoleum: everything was recorded on film.
