Influence of Far Eastern Culture on Russian Cinema of the First Half of the Twentieth Century

Rustem Mukhametzyanov

Abstract


The article examines the influence of oriental civilization on the formation of a new European culture at the example of S. Eisenstein’s work. Eisenstein’s interpretation of Far Eastern aesthetics as well as the use of the principles of hieroglyphics in the development of a now common author's method of film editing are being analysed here. Such a dialogical relationship of the Far Eastern culture with the Russian (European) one is an example of how human perception of the East by a westernised person becomes a fertile ground for creativity and formation of a new image of culture.
