The Cranes are Flying, Paperback / softback Book

The Cranes are Flying Paperback / softback

Part of the KINOfiles Film Companion series


Arguably the first masterpiece of post-Stalinist cinema, "The Cranes are Flying" is an intersection of politics and art.

A product of Khruschev's "Thaw", its sympathetic portrayal of human beings affected by World War II, and its highly individual style won awards worldwide.

Josephine Woll examines questions of theme and genre, the controversial representation of heroism and the audience reaction to these issues, as well as production, content, style and context.
