On October 4th the head of the Research Group Anna Kovalova gave a paper on Vsevolod Meyerhold’s famous lost film The Picture of Dorian Gray (1915).
At the first seminar of the new academic year the results of the initial and most important stage of the research team project were discussed. A new detailed plan was drawn up for the remaining months of work.
The first stage of the Research Team Project was completed by Jeremy Hicks's talk "The Oedipal text in Pudovkin's 1926 adaptation of Gorky’s Mother". This talk led to a stimulating discussion in which our guests took part, among them the film historians Nikolai Izvolov, Svetlana Ishevskaia, Sergei Kapterev and Evgenii Margolit, and the film director Evgenii Tsymbal.
