Re-envisioning Russia

First-Year Seminar Program 113

Usual Description

What role have filmmakers played in reshaping Russian culture over the past two decades? How did they transform Soviet myths to shape new visions for the Yeltsin nineties and the Putin aughts? To what extent did they draw from classic Russian literature by Gogol, Tolstoy or Chekhov? The films and texts we will study focus on such topics as violence and crime, youth culture. Chechnya, the super rich, rural Russia, and the Soviet past. P/NP grading only.
