Envisioning Russia: Commemorating the centenary of Russian film making

Celebrate the centenary of Russian film making with this in depth look at the work of Mosfilm, the largest and most productive studio during the Soviet era that remains Russia's most important film institution today.

Started as the state film factory, at its height, Mosfilm was the USSR's Hollywood, hosting the most popular stars and producing the most lavish productions. Eisenstein, Romm, Kalatozov, Tarkovsky, Konchalovsky and Shepitko all created masterpieces there, while the extraordinary range of Russian film production is showcased in classics, Soviet musicians, action/adventure "Easterns" and more.
