More Views

FAITH OF THE CENTURY is the epic tale of twentieth century Communism. Using fascinating footage from the national archives of Russia, France and many others, this film offers an engrossing dissection of Communism and its consequences in the 20th century.

Beginning with the Russian Revolution of 1917, Communism began to change from an ideological movement to the structure for a system of government. Over the following decades, hundreds of millions of men and women found themselves under Communist rule, an ideology that proved harder to implement than to believe in.
