A talk about Sergey Eisenstein and Early Cinema by Dustin Condred, Russian literature scholar, translator and photographer.
CHECK IN SOON FOR TIME AND DETAILS.
Dustin Condren is a professor of Russian in the department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics, an affiliated faculty member in the department of Film and Media Studies at the University of Oklahoma and a photographer. He teaches courses on Russian literature, cinema, theater, and culture and is currently working on a book that explores ways of understanding films that are imagined and prepared, but never made. I do this by analyzing a series of unrealized projects from the 1920s and 1930s by the Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein. His photographs appeared in major domestic and international publications, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, Time Out, The Times London, The Guardian, Bild, Die Zeit, and in online magazines such as Pitchfork, Noisey, The A.V. Club, NPR, and numerous other print and online outlets. Dustin Condren’s groundbreaking translation of Leo Tolstoy's The Gospel in Brief was published by HarperCollins in 2011.
