Abstract:

In the early 1930's, Soviet propaganda films profoundly influenced the emerging luminaries of the British documentary film movement, shaping their ideas about film as an art form. In this specially curated edition of both the Blu-ray and the DVD of the film and the extras, Viktor Turin's 1929 classic about the building of the Turkestan-Siberian railway, Turksib, is presented alongside a number of key British documentaries - including the celebrated Night Mail - all of which were made in the wake of Turksib by filmakers whose debt to the film is very much in evidence.
