Representing Revolution: Russia in 1917

To mark the centenary of the October Revolution, Dumfries TUC, in partnership with the local Robert Burns Centre Film Theatre (RBCFT), the Scottish Labour History Society and the Scottish Morning Star Campaign Committee is organising Representing Revolution, a programme of American, British, French and Russian (Soviet) films to explore how the October Revolution has been presented in film.
