Industrialization and centralization of the cinema industry greatly altered the way movies in the Soviet Union were made, while the introduction of sound radically influenced the way these movies were received. Kaganovsky argues that the coming of sound changed the Soviet cinema industry by making audible, for the first time, the voice of State power, directly addressing the Soviet viewer. by exploring numerous examples of films from this transitional period, the author demonstrates the importance of the new technology of sound in producing and imposing the "Soviet Voice".".Sujet - Nom commun: Films parlants | Industrie du cinéma | Cinéma et politique | | |
