(Bachelor’s programme)
2016
This research is devoting to the analysis of "Post-Soviet" cinematography dated from the late «Perestroika» period till the first decade of 2000th. The main purpose of this paper is to research how the dramatic consequences of Joseph Stalin governance and functioning of the concentration camp GULAG were reflected in the cinematography of the given period. For the detailed analysis of the terms «trauma», «memory», «concentration camp» and their sense were chosen works of such researchers as Aleida Assmann, Maurice Halbwachs, Giorgio Agamben and Alexander Etkind. To analyze cinematographic materials were used both some modern monographs and the articles dated to the releases of the films.
