Anthology of Ukrainian film critics of the 1920s. Volume 2. Cinema / Experiment


 

The anthology of Ukrainian film critics of the 1920s is a new book series by Dovzhenko Center, which explores and combines the most interesting, original and influential critical articles of the 1920s about cinema.


Volume 2. Movie / Experiment

 

The second volume of the anthology is devoted to discussion of avant-garde cinema on the pages of the Ukrainian press. In the 1920s, the attitude of the cinema as pure entertainment remained in the past, and the film industry has not yet turned into propaganda machine. Forced to catch up with European, Ukrainian film critics quickly and not always clearly sinthesized the old problems, new and more complex theories. The avant-guard cinema occupied a special place in this discussion.  In the description of various forms of the experimental film Ukrainian critics first turned to ontological questions: what is a cinema and what should it be?
