Russia on Reels : The Russian Idea in Post-Soviet Cinema, Hardback Book

Russia on Reels : The Russian Idea in Post-Soviet Cinema Hardback

Part of the KINO: The Russian Cinema Series series

Description

Film writers and scholars from Britain, Russia and the United States provide the first - scholarly and enjoyable - account of modern Russian cinema after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The book gives a much needed historical context for recent films, defines common themes and diverse aesthetic concerns and offers individual portraits of three film directors: Sokurov, Muratova, and Astrakhan.

The focal point for the discussion of a range of films is the 'Russian idea' and Russian identity and nationhood: how and why filmmakers debunk Soviet myths and the new images and cliches that are being created.
