Evgeny Dobrenko – Stalinist Cinema and the Production of History: Museum of the Revolution (2008)

‘This is essential reading for all those interested in Soviet film. Dobrenko with
his fresh approach and non-standard mix of examples confounds many of the
clichés about the subject.’

– Professor Katerina Clark, Yale University

‘Professor Dobrenko’s absorbing new study of Stalin period cinema shows how
films set in the past, from historical epics to versions of literary classics to narratives
of the Revolutionary struggle were required to adapt ‘history’ to the
evolving political demands of the present. Witty and nuanced, drawing on a
broad range of sources, the book combines unprecedented attention to hitherto
neglected films with exciting new insights into classics of Soviet cinema.’

– Professor Julian Graffy, University College London
