Propaganda In Action 13

Another Soviet animated short, "Shooting Range", made in 1979 by V. Tarasov, which is about an unemployed young American in New York City who takes a job in a shooting gallery as a human target.

Extensive use is made of American pop culture icons like the Coca-Cola logo, Mickey Mouse, Thumper the Rabbit, and other Disney characters to make its generally unsuccessful argument about American society and culture.

This film's been divided into two parts, the first part, which is posted below, and the second part, which will be posted in the next blog post.

Be seeing you.
