Event Description:
On Thursday, March 2 at 6 p.m. Marat Grinberg will give a lecture entitled The Great Banned Soviet Film Commissar (1967): History, Contexts, Aesthetics in SCEN 403. His lecture explores Aleksandr Askoldov’s film The Commissar. Because of the reference to the Holocaust, the movie was banned and it was shown to Soviet viewers only in 1986, two decades after it was shot.

Grinberg’s recent book Aleksandr Askoldov: The Commissar (Intellect Ltd., 2016), is the first book attempting to analyze the movie. He will discuss its stormy production history and the nuances and significance of its plot, including Jewish culture, the question of femininity, and the Revolution.

Grinberg is Associate Professor of Russian and Humanities at Reed College. He co-edited Woody on Rye: Jewishness in the Films and Plays of Woody Allen (2013) and wrote “I am to be Read not from Left to Right, but in Jewish: from Right to Left”: The Poetics of Boris Slutsky (2011). His essays have been in publications such as LA Review of Books, Cineaste, Commentary, Tablet Magazine, Shofar, and Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities.
