Cinema of Russia and The Former Soviet Union by Birgit Beumers
Book DescriptionThis volume explores the cinema of the former Soviet Union and contemporary Russia, ranging from the pre-Revolutionary period to the present day. It offers an insight into the development of Soviet film, from 'the most important of all arts' as a propaganda tool to a means of entertainment in the Stalin era, from the rise of its 'dissident' art-house cinema in the 1960s through the glasnost era with its broken taboos to recent Russian blockbusters. Films have been chosen to represent both the classics of Russian and Soviet cinema, as well as those films that had a more localised success and remain to date part of Russia's cultural reference system. The volume also covers a range of national film industries of the former Soviet Union in chapters on the greatest films and directors of Ukrainian, Kazakh, Georgian and Armenian cinematography. Films discussed include "Strike" (1925), "Earth" (1930), "Ivan's Childhood" (1962), "Mother and Son" (1997) and "Brother" (1997).

Directory of World Cinema: Russia, Paperback (January 2014)» View all books by Birgit Beumers
Soviet and Russian filmmakers have traditionally had uneasy relationships to the concept of genre. This volume rewrites that history by spotlighting some genres not commonly associated with the cinema of the region, including Cold War spy movies and science fiction films; blockbusters and horror films; and remakes and adventure films.
