World Cinema Saturdays

To watch UCSD-TV movies, tune in to your local cable station Saturday evenings from 4pm to midnight.

Russia's complex and often tragic history inspired generations of filmmakers who displayed a particular fondness for experimental works, peasant dramas, and biographical epics. Russian cinema is one of the world’s oldest, and Soviet artists such as Dziga Vertov, Sergei Eisenstein, and Vsevolod Pudovkin were instrumental in defining and refining film grammar while dealing with the demands of Marxist (later Stalinist) ideology. Their pioneering efforts continue to have a profound impact on the art of moving pictures.
