Cinepoetics Lecture #8: Naum Kleiman (19.11.)
News from Nov 14, 2018
Contrasting the early and late films by Sergej Eisenstein as opposite groups of work is very common. Naum Kleiman (Moscow), however, considers those films not as two contrary poles, but rather as consecutive stages in Eisenstein’s poetics of cinema. In his lecture “Vom ‚Intellektuellen Film‘ in OKTOBER zur Ikonographie in IWAN DER SCHRECKLICHE”, Kleiman elaborates on those lines of development. He will discuss how Eisenstein’s idea of the Intellectual Film develops in the direction of an Ideography, finally arriving at an Iconography of film.
Afterwards, THE GENERAL LINE (Eisenstein, SU 1929) will be screened – with Leonid Nemirowski playing the piano. Cinepoetics cordially invites you to join us on November 19 at 6:00 pm at the Kino Arsenal, Potsdamer Platz (Berlin). Admission is free for the lecture (which will be held in German). The film will start after the lecture at 8:15 pm. For the screening, Kino Arsenal will charge its usual admission fees.
