About this course:

Overshadowed by the popularity and accessibility of Hollywood films, some truly remarkable and culturally significant films of the Soviet era have for the most part remained undiscovered in the West. This course aims to shed light on Soviet-era films in which music, in one way or another, plays a significant role. These full-length iconic films introduce major genres and styles, certain directors and composers, and aspects of Soviet film history. They also give us an opportunity to explore a range of issues—cultural, historical, and aesthetic—that are relevant to our survey. Films include: Battleship Potemkin (1925); Alexander Nevsky (1938); Carnival Night (1957); The Color of Pomegranates (1969); Seven Moments of Spring (1973), and more. All films include subtitles, and English translations to all pertinent materials will be provided in advance.
