Summary expansion
  • Since the fall of Communism, Russians have struggled to reconcile their social traditions with a flood of Western cultural imports. Contemporary Russian cinema has latched on to the resulting confusion and ambivalence, mining societal upheaval for revolutionary cinematic topics. Yana Hashamova explores this largely uncharted territory inPride and Panic.A groundbreakingstudy,Pride and Panicprobes cinematic representations of the unsettled Russian national consciousness, a complex cocktail of fear, anger, and anxious uncertainty. Hashamova examines the works of both established and lesser-known Russian directors, and she draws thought-provoking parallels between these evolving social attitudes in contemporary Russia and the development of an individual human psyche. The cultural impact of globalization, the evolution of the Russian national identity, and the psychology of a society all intertwine in this fascinating study of the connections between film and political consciousness.Hashamova speaks to a wide constituency of readers. The accessibility ofPride and Paniccommends it as a course reader and handbook for undergraduate students of contemporary Russian film and culture. It can be recommended as a good introduction for members of the general public keen to know more about Russian cinematography and its bearing on the complex identities emerging in post-Soviet Russian today.Galina Miazhevich,Russian Journal of CommunicationYana Hashamova offers an important contribution and her analysis is recommended for all levels of interest in post-Soviet Russian cinema, from academic film scholar to cineaste.Lars Kristensen,Senses of CinemaShows a close reading of a voluminous amount of literature, thoughtful viewings of the films, and the ability to bring quite diverse subject matter and approaches together into a fascinating study of Russian film at the millennium.
