From Russia: Aelita (1924)

This is one the most famous silent science fiction films from the silent era.  It is also one of the most innovative silent films produced in The Soviet Union, most Soviet era silents are heavy on propaganda--so much so that there exists a whole sub-genre of silent movies for just that subject.  This is based on the Tolstoy novel of the same name.
