The Gospel of Satan (16+)

Russia, 1992, colour, 79 min.
Director: Igor Grigoriev
It is a film about people, who for a long period of time were the “Stalin’s team”, his closest fellows – Molotov, Mikoyan, Voroshilov, Kaganovich, Beria, Kalinin. All of them were implementing his policies, one way or another, they fought against “diversionists and spies” inside the party and the country, sometimes acting against the happiness and fate of their families and friends, being pawns in Stalin’s Satanist political games. Different jokes and anecdotes about Stalin and his relationships with his team are blended seamlessly into the narration.
