Summary:
1960. The USSR starts humanitarian aid programs based on Marxist ideology in several newly independent African countries. For more than 35 years the Soviets expand their influence in Africa. Soviet filmmakers are sent to document the glorious advance of socialism on the entire continent. After the fall of the Soviet Empire Russia lost political interest in Africa, but thousands of kilometers of footage shot on African soil remain. With the help of newsreels from those days, "Our Africa" will recreate the time of the "Great Utopia" and reveal the mechanisms behind the creation of propaganda films.
