According to wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eas...
The East Is Red (simplified Chinese: 东方红; traditional Chinese: 東方紅; pinyin: Dōngfāng Hóng) is a 1965 Chinese film directed by Wang Ping. It is a "song and dance epic" dramatizing the history of the Chinese Revolution and the Communist Party under the leadership of Mao Zedong, from the beginnings of the Boxer Rebellion, to the Civil War against the Nationalists, to the victory of the Communists and the establishing of the People's Republic.

I made new English subtitles after being unhappy with the version available online. I don't think the English subtitles on the version on Internet Archive (http://archive.org/details/The_East_i...) captures the feeling of the Chinese very well (and in some places it is simply wrong), and it's very difficult to read. I hope people find this version interesting and useful.

The prologue is presumably from the Hua Guofeng period in the mid-1970s.
