Aerograd is a 1930s film from influential director, Alexander Dovzhenko. Set in the Far East region of Russia, the movie centers on the struggle of patriotic Siberians against samurai-saboteurs attempting to disrupt the construction of a Soviet defense outpost.
Local residents in Aerograd, the city in the Far East where the movie takes place, are at loggerheads with each other. One side of collective farmers and Red Army Civil War veterans welcome the new Soviet state and want to bring its values and control to the Far East. Meanwhile, the other side of kulaks, descendants of the Old Believers who fled to Siberia long ago, are not so keen on the spread of Soviet influence. At the same time, saboteurs from Japan are teaming up with surviving White Russians in the area.
