The Film Sense
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1947 - 288 pages
"The Film Sense together with Film Form, by the internationally renowned Soviet director, are regarded as classic statements on the aesthetics of filmmaking. The Film Sense draws upon Eisenstein's experience in the creation of Strike, Potemkin, Ten days that shook the world, Old and New, and Alexander Nevsky to discuss films as a more expressive and profound medium that would appeal to all the senses, as well as the emotions and the intellect. The discussion ends with a fascinating analysis of audio-visual correspondences in a sequence from Alexander Nevsky. The book also includes a complete listing of Eisenstein's pre-film and film work ; an early theoretical essay ; sequences from his scenarios for an American tragedy, Que viva Mexico!, Sutter's gold, and Ferghana canal ; a bibliography of his writings ; and all the diagrams and photographs of the original edition".--Page 4 de la couverture.
