S By 1928 the Party had at last resolved to take full control of the cinema. The industry may have been nationalised in 1919, but this was in the 19 SHORT CUTS middle of a chaotic Civil War when film stock and production facilities were severely disrupted. In 1922 Goskino was set up to oversee and organise the industry, but this, too, was a failure, largely because Goskino was given neither funds nor time. It was replaced by Sovkino in 1924, under whose auspices the film studies in Leningrad and Moscow were significantly developed.

The Party Conference on Cinema in 1928 resolved that Soviet cinema must be guided by the correct socio'political content in accordance with the ideology of the proletariat: Hence the socio'political content of Soviet cinema amounts to propaganda through the depiction of the new socialist elements in the economy, in social relations, in everyday life and in the personality of man; to struggle against the remnants of the old order; to the enlightenment of the masses, in their education and organisation around the cultural, economic and political tasks of the proletariat and its Party, realised in the period of socialist construction; to the class elucidation of historical events and social phenomena; to the dissemination of general knowledge and international education of the masses; to overcoming the national prejudices and provincial narrow-mindedness of the masses and giving them access through cinema to the greatest achievements of world culture; to the organisation of leisure and entertainment, but in such a way that even 'entertainment' material in cinema organises the ideas and feelings of the audience in the direction that the proletariat requires.
The officers, with their gentrified ways, dainty pince-nez and disdain for the sailors, represent the upper classes, aided and abetted by the Church, here symbolised by a seemingly crazed priest whose hair seems to be on fire. The priest's cross is several times inter-cut with the shot of a knife, and when it is eventually prized from his hands it thuds into the wooden deck like a weapon. The institution of the Church, too, is therefore an agent of oppression and tyranny. Vakulinchuk's body is carried ashore to Odessa, where it is greeted by the mass of sympathetic townspeople.
