I don't understand why you posted that....
If you are young then you may not know.
Do you understand why you posted the PROPAGANDA link?

The People’s Commissariat for Education should organise the supervision of all film showings and systematise this business. All films shown in the
R.S.F.S.R. should be registered and numbered at the Commissariat for Education. A definite proportion should be fixed for every film-showing
a) entertainment films, specially for advertisement or income (of course, without obscenity and counter-revolution) and
b) under the heading “From the life of peoples of all countries”—pictures with a special propaganda message, such as: Britain’s colonial
policy in India, the work of the League of Nations, the starving Berliners, etc., etc. Besides films, photographs of propaganda interest should be
shown with appropriate subtitles. The privately owned cinemas should be made to yield a sufficient return to the state in the form of rent, the owners
to be allowed to increase the number of films and present new ones subject to censor ship by the Commissariat for Education and provided the proper
proportion is maintained between entertainment films and propaganda films coming under the heading of films “From the life of peoples of all
countries”, in order that film-makers should have an incentive for producing new pictures. They should be allowed wide initiative within these
limits. Pictures of a propaganda and educative nature should be checked by old Marxists and writers, to avoid a repetition of the many sad instances
when propaganda with us defeated its own purpose. Special attention should be given to organising film showings in the villages and in the East,
where they are novelties and where our propaganda, therefore, will be all the more effective.
