Retrospective show of Soviet films in Georges Pompidou Centre, Paris

On December 3rd, 2002 - February 24th, 2003 the Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris will host a retrospective show of Soviet films made in 1926-1968.

The motto of the retrospective show is "Soviet Cinema - Historical Thaw".

Over the three months Parisians will be able to get acquainted with more than 80 motion pictures, made in the Soviet Union during the so-called NEP period (new economic policy; 1921-1928), including silent films, the cultural revolution of the 1930s, films made during the Great Patriotic War and in the 1950s-1960s, French expert in the history of the Soviet cinema Bernard Eisenschitz, an organiser of the retrospective show, told RIA Novosti.

Europeans have never seen most of these films. The forthcoming show in Paris is to bridge this gap, Bernard Eisenschitz said.

The retrospective show will open with the film "The Beginning of the Unknown Age", shot by Andrei Smirnov and Larisa Shepitko in 1967-1968.

The films "Three Songs About Lenin" (Dziga Vetrov, 1934), "Little People" (Leonid Obolensky, 1926), "Jolly Fellows" (Grigory Aleksandrov, 1934), "Hearts of the Four" (Konstantin Yudin, 1941), "At Six O'clock After the War" (Ivan Pyryev, 1944), "Communist" (Yuly Raizman, 1957), "I Am Twenty" (Marlen Khutsiyev, 1964) and many others films by famous and little known Soviet directors will be shown to the French audience.

The films were granted by the State Film Foundation, the Russian Ministry of Culture and the film collection of the International Film Festival in Locarno, Switzerland.

Ukrainian bloggers draw a parallel between the events in East Timor and the Crimea. Any comparison has a right to exist, but a detailed analysis of the situation does not give a promising forecast to Ukraine
