In the totalitarian systems, the film was rapidly harnessed in the service for the State. In this context the author examines anti-Semitic films, e.g. Leni Riefenstahl's 'Triumph of the Will' and Eisenstein's 'Battleship Potemkin' as well as British propaganda films from the Boer Wars. The publication in the United States of the four-DVD set of Soviet animated propaganda films prompted the author to write a piece on the function of the cinema as a tool of propaganda. The attractiveness of the anthology lies not in the fact that the pieces are in fact unknown to the public but in its ties with the artistic trends of the epoch, caricature and satire. But first of all the films are interesting because they can serve as a peculiar mirror of the politics of revolution, anti-Capitalism and, lastly, of Cold War.
