Cinematographic Revision of Donbas
Cinematographic Revision of Donbas is the first attempt to explore and define the place of the Donbas region within the context of Ukrainian cinema history. The book’s chapters research the array of Ukrainian Soviet films which were was set in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and analyze the mechanisms of representation of the Donbas within Soviet ideological framework and myths. The intention of the book is not so much to “hear” Donbas as to “see” it; to look at it through the lens of a film camera and the lens of humanitarian knowledge; to follow a certain historical dramaturgy of the construction and the following deconstruction of the heroic narrative of the Donbas.
