1917 : the Russian Revolution

In the midst of World War I, Tsarist Russia, starving and worn out by the fighting, enters a revolution. For the people, hope comes back. But it is a short-lived dream. As chaos spreads throughout the country, a handful of men seize power, and by doing so changes the course of history. Posterity will remember the October Revolution, but tends to forget the first one, in February, that could have led Russia towards a very different path. This documentary explores the events of this decisive year for History.
