Ruptures and Continuities in Soviet/Russian Cinema : Styles, characters and genres before and after the collapse of the USSR Hardback
Edited by Birgit Beumers, Eugenie Zvonkine
Part of the Routledge Contemporary Russia and Eastern Europe Series series
This book, based on extensive original research, examines how far the collapse of the Soviet Union represented a threshold that initiated change or whether there are continuities which gradually reshaped cinema in the new Russia.
The book considers a wide range of films and film-makers and explores their attitudes to genre, character and aesthetic style.
The individual chapters demonstrate that, whereas genres shifted and characters developed, stylistic choices remained largely unaffected.
