Soviet and Russian film-makers have traditionally had uneasy relationships to the concept of genre. This volume rewrites that history by spotlighting some genres not commonly associated with cinema in the region, including Cold War spy films and science-fiction films, blockbusters and horror films, remakes and adventure films and chernukha films and serials. Introductory essays establish key aspects of these genres, and directors’ biographies provide the background for the key players.Building on the work of its predecessor, which explored cinema from the time of the tsars to the Putin era, this book will be warmly received by the serious film scholar as well as all those who love Russian cinema. Directory of World Cinema: Russia 2 is an essential companion to the filmic legacy of one of the world’s most storied countries.
