David Maryan – Zhizn v rukakh AKA Life in Your Hands (1930)

Quote:
“The film Life in Hands (David Maryan, 1930, USSR) is an instructive historical case of the transition from the bright experiments of Sergei Eisenstein and Alexander Dovzhenko to agitprop as the focus of all the most odious in Soviet cinema. Prior to this work, Marian was a screenwriter for several films, which, as far as we know, have not survived, and this is his directorial debut, which borrows a lot from both the Earth (Alexander Dovzhenko, 1930, USSR) and the General Line (Sergei Eisenstein, 1928, USSR) – both thematically and in dramatic and visual solutions. “
