The Film Factory: Russian and Soviet Cinema in Documents

Front Cover
Richard Taylor, Ian Christie
Psychology Press, 1994 - Social Science - 457 pages
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. -- publisher description.
