Programm

Aelita: Queen of Mars /???????/ Yakov Protazanov, Soviet Union, 1924,111 min, fantasy, VO, sub EN

In this silent Russian film, a loner engineer builds his own rocket and flies to the planet Mars. There he falls in love with the perfect gal. He may have discovered his version of Paradise, except for the fact that the locals are in the midst of a revolution.

A mysterious radio message is beamed around the world, and among the engineers who receive it are Los, the hero, and his colleague Spiridonov. Los is an individualist dreamer. Aelita is the daughter of Tuskub, the ruler of a totalitarian state on Mars in which the working class are put into cold storage when they are not needed. With a telescope, Aelita is able to watch Los. As if by telepathy, Los obsesses about being watched by her. After some hugger-mugger involving the murder of his wife and a pursuing detective, Los takes the identity of Spiridonov and builds a spaceship. With the revolutionary Gusev, he travels to Mars, but the Earthlings and Aelita are thrown into prison by the dictator. Gusev and Los begin a proletarian uprising, and Aelita offers to lead the revolution, but she then establishes her own totalitarian regime. Los is shocked by this development and attempts to stop Aelita, and then reality and fantasy become confused, and Los discovers what has really happened. (F. Kelleghan)
