Example text

Has been extensively researched, but mainly in terms of the politics and personalities involved. Although Eisenstein was never able to edit his cherished Mexican footage, surprisingly little attention has been paid to what can be discerned from the mass of surviving film material. 55 This unique opportunity to examine the raw material for an Eisenstein film seems so far to have prompted no further study of his compositional practice beyond the suggestions offered in Leyda’s commentary titles. After the loss of the Mexican footage and other frustrated projects of the early 1930s, Bezhin Meadow was completed in rough-cut by the end of 1936, before being finally banned in March 1937.

It was compassion and humanity that shone out from Eisenstein’s ARGUMENTS AND ANCESTORS 39 interpretation. You can imagine that the theme of compassion was not exactly the top priority at the end of the 1930s. There are many prejudices that we have to shed when we approach his work and there are whole fields that we have not even begun to touch. 18 The subject of Eisenstein’s ethics has also suddenly emerged. The fact that ethics is a very ambiguous word in itself is important to our work. We must include it alongside our purely cinematic research.

Political sophistication appears early. ’ And narrative makes its appearance with strip cartoons of a bear’s adventures and of traditional summer holidays at Trouville. 102 However the adolescent drawings that have been preserved provide us with important evidence of what would later distinguish Eisenstein as a film-maker, when another unexpected juncture launched him on that career. 105 We see this on a truly social scale in the great panoramic drawing of 150 Petersburg ‘types’, but also in more personal terms in the drawing of an inordinately fat man with a ludicrously thin servant.
