Since cinema is a branch of art that has the power to reach out to the masses and reconstruct the reality, it has been used as a propaganda tool by the ruling powers and powers and has been preferred in order to adopt the dominant ideologies to the society in the historical process. Cinema uses a number of images to convey the dominant ideologies to the audience. Representing innocence, naturalness and purity, the child is one of the most frequently used images in the art of cinema. There are also many films in the Soviet Russian cinema that include the image of children. In the study, Andrey Tarkovski's “Ivan's Childhood” and “Cylinder and Violin” films were analyzed according to the action model of Greimas, and the way children's image was used as a means of ideology transfer was determined. In the analysis of the film, it was determined that the child was an element representing the innocence, naturalness and purity of the Soviet cinema, but that the child was not an oppressed and disappearing element, but was used as an image that strengthened and struggled with each passing day
