Be they musicals or melodramas, war movies or animation, Russian films
have a long and fascinating history of addressing the major social and
political events of their time. From Sergei Eisenstein’s anti-tsarist
drama, Battleship Potemkin, to socialist realism, to the post-glasnost
thematic explosion, this volume explores the socio-political impact of
the cinema of Russia and the former Soviet Union. Introductory essays
establish key players and situate important genres within their cultural
and industrial milieus, while reviews and case studies analyze
individual titles in considerable depth. For the film studies scholar,
or for all those who love Russian cinema and want to learn more,
Directory of World Cinema: Russia is an essential companion.
