Sergei Eisenstein on location directing Bezhin Meadow. 1937.
I’ve seen the scraps and remnants that are all thats left of this film – quite fascinating. A massive self-abasing attempt at regime boot licking – condemned and destroyed by that same regime. In the middle of one of the most murderous campaigns against its own citizens by a government the world has ever seen. Insane times
I just recently found out about all of this and I’ve been reading up on it. Insane times is right.
