Eisenstein on the Audiovisual is winner of the Kraszna-Krausz Foundation's And/Or Award for the Best Moving Image Book of 2009. Chair of the judging panel Francine Stock commented: 'We had no hesitation in choosing the winner. Composer and filmmaker Robert Robertson achieves the near-impossible, shedding fresh light on Eisenstein without loading him with ideology. Like the work it describes, this book is symphonic; it draws together strong influences and forces around Eisenstein into a compelling and cogent narrative - at once enjoyable, provocative.'
