ENTHUSIASM (SYMPHONY OF THE DONBAS) is the first Ukrainian sound film.

Filmed in 1930 by the world-class master of the cinematic avant-garde Dziga
Vertov. It became the first motion-picture in which real industrial and
routine sounds served to create an independent musical image. The film was
dedicated to the First Five Year Plan, glorified industrialization and
collectivization as well as propagandized the fight against illiteracy and
religion.

ENTHUSIASM was shot when the Ukrainization program was cut down. But the
camera of cameraman Hans Zeitlin still captured many indications of it. The
film named by Charlie Chaplin one of the most impressive sound symphonies
was released in theaters on April 2, 1931. But shortly after was removed
from distribution and forgotten. It was rediscovered only in 1960s due to
the renewed interest to the Soviet avant-garde in the West.

The Ukrainian Museum's film series and traditional arts programs are
supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of
Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
