KINO: The Russian Cinema series
Special offer: 30% discount on all titles!

The KINOfiles series of accessible, illustrated paperbacks examines
Russian and Soviet films intheir historical and aesthetic context, both
major cultural forces in Russian history and Sovietpolitics and as central
to the development of world cinema. Launched in late 2004 were the first
four KINOfiles Filmmakers’ Companions, designed for students and the
general reader – introductions to and analyses of the most important
filmmakers to emerge from Russian cinema.

Storm over Asia The film companion 11 Amy Sargeant Vsevolod
Pudovkin’s Storm over Asia is regarded as a major film of Soviet
silent cinema and one that works on many levels. Released in 1928, it is a
rallying cry for the revolution, an adventure film, and an intriguing and
moving document of a vanished way of life. Its hero Bair is often praised
as the model action hero. It takes place on the Mongolian frontier in
1920, where the descendents of Ghenghis Khan are now Mongol herdsmen,
their land occupied by the British. It relates what happens when a young
Mongol – played by Mongolian Valeri Inkizhinov – rebels against these
double-talking Westerners. Amy Sargeant is an authority on the cinema of
Pudovkin, and her companion to the film throws new light on
Pudovkin’s art in making it,
as well as its text and the story of its distribution. She concludes with
a discussion about how the film was received within Russia and celebrated
by critics and audiences overseas. Amy Sargeant is the author of Vsevolod
Pudovkin: Classic Films of the Soviet Avant-Garde (I.B. Tauris) and of
British Cinema: A Critical History (BFI). December 2007 128 pages PB 216
