Abstract

This book presents a re-examination of the cinemas of a range of countries in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe in communist times. It argues that, since the end of communism in these countries, scholars of film are able to view the cinemas of those countries in communist times in a different way, no longer bound by a Cold War outlook, an outlook which tended to view such cinemas only in Cold War terms. At the same time, with the opening of archives in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, much more is known about the state and society in those countries in communist times. This re-examination of cinema presents a rich, varied tapestry, relating specific film to specific national circumstances, and viewing these cinemas more as part of the diverse "world cinema" than as a single, monolithic "Cold War Communist" cinema.
