Vostokkino (Eastern Cimema)

Vostokkino was a trust formed in 1926 out of three film companies, Tatkino, Nemkino and Chuvashkino. It produced and exhibited movies in the regions of Central Asia and Siberia. While Vostokkino produced cinema and handled some motion picture marketing of the films under its banner, it did not typically produce political posters. The Vostokkino trust was terminated between 1934 and 1935 due in large part to inferior cinema technology and a lack of viable film scripts.
