Neon has released the trailer for Andrei Konchalovsky‘s upcoming historical drama Dear Comrades!, which looks at the worker strike that occurred in the town of Novocherkassk in 1963.
Dear Comrades! opens on virtual cinema platforms January 29th and on VOD platforms and Hulu February 5th.
When the communist government raises food prices in 1962, the rebellious workers from the small industrial town of Novocherkassk go on strike. The massacre which then ensues is seen through the eyes of a devout party activist. Dear Comrades! received critical praise out of the Venice Film Festival, with Variety calling it “scintillating” and “meticulous and majestic, epic in scope and tattoo-needle intimate in effect,” and The Playlist describing it as “a fascinating blend of dark satire and bleak archaeology.”
