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

Rustem Mukhametzyanov


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.
