Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The Film Factory" provides a comprehensive documentary history of Russian and Soviet cinema. It provokes a major reassessment of conventional Western understanding of Soviet cinema. Based on extensive research and in original translation, the documents selected illustrate both the aesthetic and political development of Russian and Soviet cinema, from its beginnings as a fairground novelty in 1896 to its emergence as a mass medium of entertainment and propaganda on the eve of World War II.

Book News Annotation:

A chronological history presenting material drawn from newspapers, film reviews, speeches, manifestos, Party proclamations, government decrees, and other sources concerning the work of diverse film writers. Fine b&w photographs and stills.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
