PROGRAM - Special Focus - Aleksey GERMAN: The Auteur of Confined Revolt

Aleksey GERMAN: The Auteur of Confined Revolt

  • Along with Andrei Tarkovsky and Kira Muratova, Aleksey German is a Russian writer, who was the main member of the Soviet new wave started in 1960. He passed away at the age of seventy-three. He was a film director, who was sacrificed by a harsh doctrine of Soviet, suppressing freedom of artistic creation. After 1968, he only managed to direct six films; however, all of them were masterpieces.

    Most of his films had set the era of Stalin as a background and explored the turning point of Soviet history in a critical perspective. Because of his antiestablishment attitude, he had a difficult time producing films. He challenged traditional dramaturgy with numerous characters and fragmented narratives. Most of films were monochromic, few colors with a dark look, making it look old. Among them, three films were not released for a while. It took seven years to produce Khrustalyov My Car!. His posthumous work, Hard to Be a God, was completed by his son, Aleksey German Jr.

    After the fall of Societism in Russia, his films were often introduced in international film festivals and cinematheque. Since his works were not fully introduced in South Korea, this is a chance for having retrospective. Aleksey GERMAN: An Auteur of a Confined Revolt shows a total of seven works, including his six films and The Fall of Ortar, which was written and produced by German.
