Beginning of an Unknown Era – Film-making in the Soviet Thaw

Matthew Jarron

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW START DATE –  26 APRIL

The death of Stalin in 1953 led to a re-thinking of Soviet policy in many areas, including the cinema. Censorship was relaxed and film-makers gained new freedom of expression, resulting in a wave of artistically ambitious productions that saw the USSR regain worldwide prestige for the quality of its films. This short course will explore some of the highlights of Soviet film-making in the late 1950s and 60s, featuring the work of new talents such as Grigory Chukhrai, Sergei Parajanov and Andrei Tarkovsky.
