Stalin's Sickle (1986) [Short]

New Zealand (MIFF 1987 )
Director: Costa Botes

A delightful narrative about the escalation of a young Catholic boy's obsession with Josef Stalin, which is propagated by the conservative and austere environment of New Zealand in the 1950s. Stalin's Sickle could well be a generic relative of last year's popular By Bread Alone.
