Palace for the People tells the stories of the most emblematic four buildings of socialist times: The National Palace of Culture in Sofia, Moscow State University, Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Palace of Serbia in Belgrade, Palace of the Republic in Berlin. These socialist palaces are unique architectural creatures made with courage, and a bit of lunacy, to remind the people there was an ultimate power. Now it’s time to reveal their hidden secrets. The film takes a snapshot of the palaces today, seen through the eyes of their architects, directors and the people who worked in them.
