9780047910272: Kino: History of the Russian and Soviet Film


This history of the turbulent destiny of Kino ("film" in Russian) documents the artistic development of the Russian and Soviet cinema and traces its growth from 1896 to the death of Sergei Eisenstein in 1948. The new Postscript surveys the directions taken by Soviet cinema since the end of World War II. Beginning with the Lumiere filming of the coronation of Tsar Nicholas II, Jay Leyda links Russia's pre-Revolutionary past with its Communist present through the observation of a major cultural phenomenon: the evolution of the Soviet film as an artistic and political instrument. The book contains 150 drawings and photographs and five appendices, including a list of selected Russian and Soviet films from 1907 to the present.

Review:

"The Battleship Potemkin," "By the Law," "Mother," "Earth," "Man With a Movie Camera," "Alexander Nevsky": Russia and the Soviet Union produced some of the greatest films the world has ever seen. Leyda has written a riveting history of the pioneers and artists who made these films. His acclaimed book tells the story of the industry that spawned them and the revolution that both inspired and crushed them.

About the Author:

Jay Leyda (1910-1988) was a leading film historian and filmmaker who studied directing with Sergei Eisenstein at the Moscow State Film School. He was a correspondent for Theatre Arts Monthly and New Theatre and an art critic for the Moscow News. He is the translator of Mussorgsky's correspondence and editor of Eisenstein's Film Essays and a Lecture (Princeton) and Film Form and The Film Sense. With Zina Voynow, he wrote and compiled Eisenstein at Work.
