Russians celebrate on mountainside and open a commemorative arch in the countryside.
USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics).
Rocky; barren terrain; plains w/ mountains in background. Celebration taking place; commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Russian Revolution (and perhaps something else to do w/ the establishment of the USSR). Horsemen come riding across the plains; some carrying flags. Crowd of people on cliffs; watching. More men on horseback; a long line approaching. CU group of children and women smiling; waving. Women all wear shawls wrapped over their heads and around their shoulders; in the Muslim style. Wide shot crowds on cliffs and below. Long line of women walking in pairs at foot of cliff.
Men gathered in front of archway w/ star at top; decorated w/ banners etc. Ribbons forming an X stretched across arch opening. CU a military officer w/ big moustache on horseback; draws his sword and rides toward the arch; slashing the ribbons. Procession streams through. Shot from very high above; looking down; shows how out in the middle of nowhere this really is. Ground level shot of crowds cheering; throwing papers in the air; etc. A few white; official-looking buildings in BG.
Looks as if the arch has been erected on a significant site in the countryside, but it's not clear what actually happened here.
