Lecture on Russian film history held in Granada


Last week, the Russian Center of the University of Granada, together with the Pushkin Institute of the University of Cadiz, held an event dedicated to the origins of Russian cinema.

The chief librarian of the Cervantes Institute in Manila, Carlos Valmaceda, spoke about when and how cinema appeared in Russia, showed photographs illustrating the early period in the development of Russian cinema, and spoke about the first directors and their films. Carlos spent five years in Moscow, where he began to study Russian and became interested in the history of Russian cinema.

The meeting was held online. About 30 people joined the videoconference. The success of the event inspired the Russian Center in Granada and the Pushkin Institute in Cadiz to continue their cooperation and organize a course dedicated to the beginning of  cinema in Russia.
