As I may have mentioned before, I am in process of writing a screenplay for a pro-communist movie. It's pretty much a mish-mash of eccentric subplots about four fictitious members of the politburo in pre-war Soviet Russia, their ideals, motives and why they became communists.

It is confronting, over-dramatic and weird (because that's ma style
) It set in what is meant to be the Stalinist 1930's, but it is entirely fictitious. The idea of writing about actual figures and events has been suggested to me, but I would only get too creative and screw up all the details. My greatest pleasure in writing comes from making up my own characters and stories.

So, as socialists, I am interested to know what you guys would and wouldn't like to see in film that advocates communism.

a big thing for me(i'm not going to speak on behalf of the other comrades) is the break of the worker from capitalism/bourgeuoise(hope i spelled that right haha)if you could set a scene at least about the workers working for the betterment of society instead of the betterment of a few. ok enough of my ranting i made my point.



hope that helped a little bit.

Thanks comrades!

I suppose the main theme is the importance of the dignity and equality of human beings, which communism aims to embrace, but capitalism totally ignores.

I honestly don't know, it's just something I'm doing for fun at the moment. The idea of getting it made makes me ecsatic, but that's a tad improbable. It'll be a long while before I finish the screenplay anyway, I'm very obsessive and takes me ages to decide when something is 'right".

I've given the plot outline to a few friends interested in drama/english/literature etc, who liked it alot, but details are always changing.
