Product Description

Goldovskaia, a prize-winning documentary filmmaker who taught for decades at Moscow State U. and now teaches at UCLA, has written a biographical account of her life and work in Russia, where she began making films in the 1930s. In an animated style, often incorporating dialogue to tell her stories, Goldovskaia describes her determined, lifelong pursuit to make films depicting both contemporary life and historic events, and the endless, pointless trials of dealing with Soviet bureaucracy as she struggled to have her films allowed, both to be made and to be shown. An alphabetical list of writers, actors, and others is included as an appendix, with short biographies of each. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
