Dimitri Devyatkin: The Russian Tapes

1978, 50:46 min, color and b&w, sound

Documenting life in the Soviet Union before the era of Gorbachev and glasnost, Devyatkin goes beyond conventional Western reporting on Russian culture. Suggestopedia: A Science of Learning is a rare view of the Soviet educational system, in which Devyatkin's camera unobstrusively follows a teacher and her students through a course of foreign-language instruction at Moscow State Pedagogical Center. Russian Soul uses both documentary footage and image processing to draw a portrait of Russia as a complex, multiethnic culture.



Suggestopedia: A Science of Learning: Produced by Synapse Video Center, Syracuse University; the New House Communications Center.

In Russian with subtitles and English.
