Ruptures and Continuities in Soviet/Russian Cinema

Birgit Beumers, E. Zvonkine

Research output: Book/ReportBook


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. © 2018 selection and editorial matter, Birgit Beumers and Eugénie Zvonkine.
