  • Description

    THIS IS THE SECOND OF TWO FILMS DEALING WITH LIFE AND THE POLITICAL SCENE IN ALBANIA TODAY.

    THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN RULED BY THE "ALBANIAN LABOUR PARTY" (COMMUNIST) UNDER GENERAL ENVER HOXHA SINCE THE END OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR. AT THE 22ND COMMUNIST PARTY CONGRESS IN MOSCOW IN 1961, THE ALBANIAN LEADERSHIP WAS CRITICISED BY MR. KHRUSHCHEV FOR CONTINUING TO FOLLOW A "STALINIST" LINE. THIS WAS FOLLOWED A BREACH OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES IN DECEMBER 1961, AND THE STOPPING OF SOVIET FINANCIAL AID.

    ALBANIA HAD THE SUPPORT OF THE CHINESE DELEGATION AT THE CONGRESS, AND IS TODAY RECEIVING SUBSTANTIAL ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE FROM THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC.
