Migrant and Diasporic Cinema in Contemporary Europe


The Cinema of Russia and The Former Soviet Union

Birgit Beumers

Publisher: Wallflower Press, 2007

This 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.
