Soviet Film Expeditions of the 1930's through the Eyes of Greater Tokyo Inhabitants

Fyodorova A.A.

Abstract

The early 1930's were a turning point in the history of Japan and its cinema. The transition to the sound film, the rapid development of documentary genre and use of it for propaganda purposes took place in the context of the filmmakers' interest to the experience of Soviet cinema, its highly expressive editing, documentary style and ideological partiality. The sound documentary «Greater Tokyo» (1932) by V. Shneiderov was created in these years. The film has been forgotten for a long time due to various reasons. The author tries to return the film into the historical context of the early 1930's and analyze the perception of Soviet documentaries in the pre-war Japan.

Alexander Sokurov’s “Faust”: Projection of Political Disasters in the History of the XX Century on Goethe's Tragedy

Khrenov N.A.

Abstract

The Sokurov’s film, based on Goethe's tragedy, is not a usual screen version. The use of a classical piece in order to make a statement about the present could turn into a vulgar and superficial interpretation. But the director’s idea to include new film into the tetralogy, i.e. the group of films dedicated to the dictators of the XX century, implies close reading of the original. Trying to understand the initial Goethe's intensions, the author (series of articles, the beginning see Issue # 17) discovers a source of complex of de monism in the Western culture, which includes explanation of the masses’ perception of the political leaders.

Abstract

The article (the ending; for the beginning see Issue # 17) analyses the role of musical minimalism in the aesthetic perception and theoretical interpretation of a film. This analysis is based on two phenomena: the transcendizing of the artistic space via the inherent value of an isolated sound and the change in the sense of time through the repetitiveness of musical techniques.

The Visible and Invisible Worlds in Louis Bunuel’s “Viridiana”

Perelshtein R.M.

Abstract

Bunuel’s “Viridiana” is generally referred to as an anti-religious film. However, the director’s poetic language which has been one of the bases of the transcendental cinematic style suggests otherwise. Bunuel is against religionism still he does not deny the existence of a numinous, metaphysical reality and the ultimate values. By means of grotesque realism he tries to rehabilitate the invisible world.
