The aim of this research is to identify and study the discourse opposing the official one in feature films of Soviet cinematographi. The argument is that artistic autonomy existed in Soviet cinematography and it created a niche space for political communication in which a reverse discourse appeared. The reverse discourse is a discourse that expresses and contains statements or messages that contradict and consequently oppose the official discourse, the ideology. A context for this study is provided in the form by reviewing and interpreting theories about ideology, control, power relations and the role of common sense as an ideological goal but also by a brief history of Soviet cinematography. A discourse analysis and a content analysis are applied on twenty-five motion pictures produced between 1956 and 1989. The purpose and the content of the messages encountered in these motion pictures are interpreted and analyzed.
