The fall of the Romanov dynasty by Ėsfirʹ Ilʹinichna Shub( Visual )

45 editions published between 1927 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1920s, Soviet documentary and fiction films were financed by the State, and their fledgling directors, some barely out of their teens, converted their lives from theater, engineering, painting and journalism to the practice and theory of a revolutionary cinema devoted to showing the achievements and aspirations of the new Socialist society. Their problem was to captivate an enormous, culturally diverse, multi-lingual, semi-literate population in ways that would be emotionally compelling, yet ideologically clear. The proven ability of movies to achieve this difficult goal inspired Lenin's famous dictum, 'For us, cinema is the most important art, ' and their stunning innovations recharged world cinema. Editing, or montage, is the common organizational basis of these films and each of the filmmakers believed the arrangement of shots to be the foundation of film art. Esfir Shub's Fall of the Romanov Dynasty (1927) is culled from pre-Soviet Russian newsreels gathered from Europe and America. In montage style, the film uses old newsreels, official film records and home movies of the Tsar's family and other dignitaries

The house on Trubnaya: Comedy about a young peasant woman who travels to Moscow to start a new life. By the law: Tense drama about Alaskan gold-miners. Extraordinary adventures of Mr. West in the land of the Bolsheviks: The first Russian anti-American film both arrogantly mocks American ignorance toward the Soviet Union and enviously copies American cinematic methods. Old and new: In this early Soviet propaganda film, a poor woman persuades her fellow villagers to form a cooperative. Stride Soviet!: Documentary exploration of the various layers of Moscow society on the ten-year anniversary of the Revolution. The film reveals the continuing class-based nature of Soviet society through a series of montages of city life. The fall of the Romanov dynasty: Historical documentary which uses newsreel footage (some shot by Czar Nicholas II's own cameramen) to depict the tumultuous events of 1912 through 1917, as the leadership of the Czar and the Russian aristocracy crumbles and Lenin rises to power in the wake of the Soviet Revolution.

Abrek zaur( Visual )

1 edition published in 1926 in Russian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"It is the middle of the 19th century. On the spur of the Caucasus a village nestles at the foot of the towering mountains. It is ruled with the iron hand of the tasr's officials and the cossacks they command. Deprived of their rich pastures and allotted small unproductive parcels of land, for which they pay rental to the landlords, they eke out a meager living from the fields they till. Poor, oppressed, they contemplate at least an appeal to the authorities for redress of their grievances. The notion is opposed by the moneyed local merchant, a tight-fisted cooperator of the authorities. But the people have a champion, the bold and dashing Zaur, who fears no one. Three people asre especially dear to him: his beautiful sister Fatima, his friend Murtaza, whom he calls brother, and Syuver, the merchant's daughter, with whom he's in love."--MOMA program notes

Esther Shub's the fall of the Romanov Dynasty( Visual )

1 edition published in 1996 in Russian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"A daring and innovative document portraying the fall of the Czarist regime and the rise of Communist rule. Director Esther Shub searched all over the Soviet Union for thousands of films (including many rarities from the Czar's own cameramen) to bring to life an exciting historical drama of the events from 1912 to 1917 that shook the twentieth century. Included are remarkable films of Czar Nicholas II, World War I, Alexander Kerensky, the February Revolution and the arrival of Lenin. The fall of the Romanov Dynasty is an explosive, fascinating and truly gripping view of history. Esther Shub was the country's finest film editor and a mentor to Sergei Eisenstein (and his montage theories), assisting him on the shooting scripts of Strike and Potemkin. Shub continued to work and be honored in the Soviet Union into the post World War II period"--Videodisc sleeve. Pavel Miliukov also appears
