I'm quite proud of this one - it's about women in war and in film, February 23, patriarchy and weird gendered holidays in Russia. And again I'm subtly declaring my love for Soviet cinema.
Seriously, The Dawns Here Are Quiet is an amazing film, watch it. It's one of the very few Soviet films that has a nude scene, and it has several women in it, AND it's completely non-sexual. Actually, the director had to fight so many party officials on this scene, saying that it's crucial to show that the people (the women) who died in the war are the same women (the same bodies, hence the nudity) that we sleep with, the same bodies that give birth, feed children etc. It might seem patronising but it was in fact important to humanise women who went to war* since they were shamed and ostracised after (I'm talking about this in the text so go read).
*I mean we still need to humanise women regardless of their involvment in wars. But that was a rather revolutionary thought for 1972.
