The Soviet Influence: From Turksib to Nightmail...

The small number of Russian films which were shown in Britain in the late 1920s and early 1930s excited the attention of British filmmakers and writers, and played a central role in developing ideas about film as an art-form. In particular this influence was felt in the British documentary film work of such key figures as John Grierson and Paul Rotha. This unique and fascinating release explores this influence through the formal and thematic relationships between Viktor Turin's extraordinary, yet little-seen, silent documentary Turksib (1929), and a number of British documentary films, including the celebrated Night Mail (1936). Extra Features: Dual Format Edition: includes both the Blu-ray and the DVD of the film and the extras. Workers Topical News Parts 1 and 2 (1930, 10 mins): the newsreels shown at Turksib's Britsh premiere Australian Wine (Paul Rotha, 1931): charming and lively promotional film employing Soviet-style montage. The Country Comes to Town (Basil Wright, 1931): a celebration of the importance of the British countryside. Shadow on the Mountains (Arthur Elton, 1932): expressive titles and cinematography are deployed in this lyrical film about farming. The Face of Britain (Paul Rotha, 1935): a passionate and ambitious appeal for socialist planning Night Mail (Harry Watt, Basil Wright, 1936): justly celebrated, this seminal film applies the aesthetic lessons of Soviet cinema to a very British tale.

Woe from Wit (eBook, ePUB)
8,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Alexander Griboedov's Woe from Wit is one of the masterpieces of Russian drama. A verse comedy set in Moscow high society after the Napoleonic wars, it offers sharply drawn characters and clever repartee, mixing meticulously crafted banter and biting social critique. Its protagonist, Alexander Chatsky, is an idealistic ironist, a complex Romantic figure who would be echoed in Russian literature from Pushkin onward. Chatsky returns from three years abroad hoping to rekindle a romance with his childhood sweetheart, Sophie. In the meantime, she has fallen in love with Molchalin, her reactionary father Famusov's scheming secretary. Chatsky speaks out against the hypocrisy of aristocratic society-and as scandal erupts, he is met with accusations of madness.Woe from Wit was written in 1823 and was an immediate sensation, but under heavy-handed tsarist censorship, it was not published in full until forty years later. Its influence is felt not just in Russian literary language but in everyday speech. It is the source of a remarkable number of frequently quoted aphorisms and turns of phrase, comparable to Shakespeare's influence on English. Yet owing to its complex rhyme scheme and verse structure, the play has frequently been considered almost untranslatable. Betsy Hulick's translation brings Griboedov's sparkling wit, spirited dialogue, and effortless crossing of registers from elevated to colloquial into a lively contemporary English.

Deathless
9,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Romantic and blood-streaked, and infused with magic so real you can feel it on your fingertips - Deathless is beautiful.' Cory Doctorow 'A clever and often beautifully written fusion of a Russian fairy tale and Russian history. Valente's invention and ambition are extraordinary.' The Times A handsome young man arrives in St Petersburg at the house of Marya Morevna. He is Koschei, the Tsar of Life, and he is Marya's fate. For years she follows him in love and in war, and bears the scars. But eventually Marya returns to her birthplace - only to discover a starveling city, haunted by death. Deathless is a fierce story of life and death, love and power, old memories, deep myth and dark magic, set against the history of Russia in the twentieth century. It is, quite simply, unforgettable. 'Swept away to the icy wastes of the Russian steppes and the frigid streets of Stalinist St Petersburg by Catherynne M. Valente's Deathless, I felt I'd happened upon a forgotten classic.' Big Issue 'Stories, unlike people, can live again... They must be revived by the miraculous touch of a very rare class of being, a kind of multi-classed genius/scholar/saint, who can restore them to life. Catherynne Valente is such a being.' Lev Grossman 'A remarkable piece of speculative fiction - a collision of myth, magic, folklore and actual history (almost incidentally describing the story of Russia across the twentieth century) . . . Bold, subversive, genre-defying.' BookOxygen [ISBN barcode: 9781472108685] £7.99 www.constablerobinson.com [Insert Corsair logo] [Insert design details]

Jacques and His Master is a deliciously witty and entertaining "variation" on Diderot's novel Jacques le Fatalist, written for Milan Kundera's "private pleasure" in the aftermath of the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia. When the "heavy Russian irrationality" fell on Czechoslovakia, Milan Kundera explains, he felt drawn to the spirit of the eighteenth century - "And it seemed to me that nowhere was it to be found more densely concentrated than in that banquet of intelligence, humor, and fantasy, Jacques le Fataliste." The upshot was this "Homage to Diderot," which has now been performed throughout the United States and Europe. Here, Jacques and His Master, newly translated by Simon Callow, is a text that will delight Kundera's admirers throughout the English-speaking world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Callow, David Timson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/003263/bk_harp_003263_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Growing up, I loved Russian fairy-tales, but when I tried reading them to my son, in Arizona, he wasn't impressed. The stories felt foreign and dated to both of us. But I still loved the characters and the magic of these fairy-tales, so I decided to write a series aimed at American kids. The first book is Firebird: Adventure One. This is the second book, where ten-year-old Alex and his nine-year-old sister Katie have just returned from their first adventure into the land of Russian fairy-tales where they met Baba Yaga, the Russian witch, and got a magical feather from the Firebird. Now, Alex wants to know what Aunt Karina's old book says about the real ending to the Firebird story. "You and Katie created the real ending. The stories and legends are alive and always changing. And you can change their outcomes," Aunt Karina says. Excited, Katie finds another story to change. A young man named Emelya is imprisoned by an evil tsar. Alex and Katie rush to the rescue. When they stop by a log cabin to ask for directions, a creature in a sheepskin's coat with green furry hands opens the door. His emerald eyes shine a bright green light right at Alex and Katie. Is he a friend or an enemy? Will Alex and Katie find Emelya? Will they return safely to Aunt Karina's house? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Lea McCarthy.

Chicago's citizens appreciated Blue Knight's efforts to make their city one of the safest in the country. Yet this success did not satisfy Roger/Blue Knight. It distressed him when criminals still got away with their crimes. As much as he tried to catch every one of them, the laws of physics still applied - it was not possible to be in two places at the same time.  So, he often used the Vision Panel to scan crime scenes in progress, decided which ones had priority, and hoped he made the right judgments. First, he went to where a life or lives appeared to be in danger. He also rushed from one scene to another. The day was a happy one when he totally foiled the attempted offenses.  Chicago's crime elements, such as Ivan, leader of the Russian mafia, hated Blue Knight's encroachment on their activities. Ivan's primary goal became elimination of the armored hero, forever.  The crime leader had the advantage of surprise attacks against the superhero, conducted in secret by the Russian mafia. Ivan also felt he could carry out one deception after another until something worked. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Allen L Pollens.
