Overview

KINO The Russian Cinema Series:
This series of books examines Russian and Soviet film in their historical and aesthetic context, both as a major cultural force in Russian history and Soviet politics and as a crucible for experimentation that is central to the development of world cinema culture. Drawing authors from both East and West, the books in this series combine the best of scholarship with a style of writing that is accessible to a broad readership, whether that readership's primary interest lies in cinema or in Russian and Soviet political history.

Savage Junctures provides fresh insights into Eisenstein's films and writings. It examines the multiple contexts within which his films evolved and Eisenstein's appropriation of all of world culture as his source. Like Eisenstein himself, Anne Nesbet is particularly interested in the possibilities of visual image making and each chapter addresses the problem of his image-based thinking from a different perspective. Each chapter also offers a fundamentally new interpretation of the films and writings that make up his oeuvre. This is a major new contribution to studies in Soviet cinema and culture and to the field of film studies, now available in paperback for the first time.
