Cinema of the Thaw: Style, Narrative, and Modernity
Wednesday, March 31, 202112:00 pm – 1:00 pm EST/GMT-5
A discussion lead by Olga Davydova (Assistant Professor, Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences (Smolny) of St. Petersburg University)
The year 1953 brought political and cultural changes into Soviet life, and these changes were of course reflected by filmmakers. Cinema of the “thaw” is marked by liberalization, self-expression and therefore extensive rethinking of film style and narrative structures. We shall discuss the milestones of Soviet cinema of the 1950s and 1960s, while also paying special attention to how young people were represented in their search for love and freedom.
