Vsevolod Pudovkin (1893-1953) was one of the leading Soviet film directors in the ‘golden age’ of silent cinema in the 1920s. His films - especially The Mother, The End of St Petersburg and Storm over Asia - are classics of silent cinema. Like Eisenstein, Pudovkin was also a major theorist of film. This new translation of Pudovkin´s seminal writings brings together his most important essays from his two key books, Film Technique and Film Acting. The essays highlight the development of Pudovkin´s revolutionary thinking on scripts, directing, time, sound, and acting.
