Designer: S. Semenov
Turksib is a 1929 Soviet documentary film directed by Viktor Turin documenting the building of the Turkestan–Siberia Railway. The rail line stretched north east from Tashkent to Almaty and onto Novosibirsk. The film contrasts the open desert and sand, with the order of a rails and movement of machines. This drama is set against the dry steppe as it is converted into a cotton growing region.
'Turksib' was particularly appreciated by the classic British and Canadian documentary filmmaker John Grierson, who prepared the English version of the picture.
