TV-Drama History

1919 - The Tchekist

A 55' tv drama directed in 1990 by Alexandre Rogoskin

Towards the end of 1919, Sroubov, who has been involved in liquidating "enemies of the people" without feeling guilty in the least, begins to become aware that he is serving a regime of terror. This is not the revolution that he had dreamed about.

When Sroubov executes his own father, he goes mad. When he is arrested, his mind is haunted by a nightmarish vision of the revolution.

The film draws a psychological portrait of a revolutionary executioner, who despite the power he has over killers and victims, is also sucked up by the repressive machinery that he's a part of.
