Revolt of the Fishermen (Восстание рыбаков; Vosstaniye rybakov) is a 1934 Soviet B&W movie directed by Mikhail Doller and Erwin Piscator, based on the novel "Revolt of the Fishermen of Santa Barbara" by Anna Seghers. The plot narrates about the strike among the impoverished fishermen of the San Sebastian city, caused by the deterioration of working conditions on the vessels of the ship owner Bredel, and its subsequent severe suppression by government troops. The movie was originally planned to be filmed in Russian and German versions, but only the first was completed. The export version of movie with subtitles was distributed in 1935 to European countries, with the exception of Germany due to well-known events.
