Eighty-nine years after the Bolshevik October Revolution (and 16 years after its collapse), Films by Jove is releasing a 4-DVD set called Animated Soviet Propaganda. The set is based on 4 dozen rarely seen shorts produced by Soviet government agency Soyuzdetmultfilm from 1924 to 1984. Films by Jove acquired the rights to these shorts in 1992 and has since then digitally restored approximately 50 hours of film.
Since these animated movies were intended to win the hearts and minds of the Russian people, all of them have a strong anti-American, anti-German, anti-British, anti-Japanese, anti-Capitalist, anti-Imperialist, and pro-Communist slant. Many of them also feature anti-Semitic and other racist images. There is approximately two hours of documentary and six hours of animated films.
