Sauro Ravaglia, an amateur filmmaker, barber & communist, dreams with his friends of a world of peace, brotherhood, & equality—of the Soviet Union. When they have the chance of attending the World Festival of Socialist Youth, they arm themselves with an 8mm camera to film their journey.

Our take

The journey of a dream chased—and a dream awakened. A beautiful tale—and true story—spun from archival material telling of the infectious hopes and idealism of mid-century communism joyously loved and chased and then confronted with reality.
