RACHEL MORLEY. The pre-Revolutionary Films of Evgenii Bauer.
It was only in the dying days of the Soviet regime that the works of the
Russian
film pioneer Evgeni Bauer were rediscovered and celebrated. Before his
death in
1917 he made over 80 films. A few of these were shown at the National
Film
Theatre some years ago, but he still remains largely unknown. Rachel
Morley is
a research student and postgraduate teaching assistant at the UCL School
of
Slavonic and East European Studies. She has published several articles on
Bauer's films and has recently completed an analysis of Bauer's A Life for
a
Life for a critical guide to the cinema of Russia and the former Soviet
Union to
be published in autumn 2006.

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE.
Noah Birksted-Breen on Contemporary playwriting in Russia: in search of a
tradition. This event will now take place on TUESDAY 31 OCTOBER

Pennington.
