BIOGRAPHY

ALEKSANDR DOVZHENKO

Aleksandr Dovzhenko (1894–1956) was a screenwriter, producer and film director. He is considered one of the most important pioneers of Soviet cinema along with Sergey Eisenstein and Vsévolod Pudovkin. He began his career in 1926, when he moved to Odessa, where he produced and directed his second script, Vasya reformátor, which he also directed. He obtained greater success with Zvenigorá in 1928, which established him as one of the most important filmmakers of the time. It is internationally recognized for its "Ukrainian Trilogy" (Arsenal, Earth and Ivan), although Soviet critics despised it, as some considered its realism to be counterrevolutionary.
