Exhibition - Filming the War: the Soviets and the Holocaust
The political role played by cinema during the Second World War is an acknowledged fact. There is no shortage of research into the productions of Hollywood, Great Britain and France during that period, but our knowledge of Soviet cinema is less well documented. Funded by ANR since 2013, the CINESOV project has set itself the goal of exploring the Soviet cinematographic policy and its implications, both economic and social, in Russia at war (1939-1949). An exhibition entitled "Filming the War – The Soviets and the Holocaust, 1941-1946", currently showing at the Shoah Memorial in Paris until 27th September 2015, fits into this perspective.
