Student: Anna Andreeva

Supervisor: Yana Linkova

Faculty: Faculty of Humanities

Educational Programme: Philology (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2020

The study aims to analyze film prose of a Russian writer, journalist and screenwriter Anna Mar (1887–1917). By the mid 1910s Anna Mar was one of the most famous female writers. In 1914, she was engaged in screenwriting by a film producer Alexander Hanžonkov, became an editorial Board member of “Journal for Women” (“Žurnal dlja ženŝin”) and began to write her main novel “Woman on the Cross” (“Ženŝina na kreste”). Journalism, cinema and literature are three different but, in this particular case, interconnected areas, Mar had been working on from 1914 until her death. In all three cases, her audience, readers and viewers, was the same: coevals with the century and cinematography, typical cinema visitors. Therefore, Mar’s film prose will be analyzed in three contexts: female screenwriting of the 1910s, Mar’s journalistic articles and her literary texts published from 1914 to 1916, the main of which is “Woman on the Cross” (“Ženŝina na kreste”).
