The Story of Film: An Odyssey (E3) - The Golden Age of World Cinema (2011)

Documentary, Captioned 1h 2m

International figures push back at cinema’s boundaries. Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Shanghai and Tokyo were the producing passionate new movements, shows Mark Cousins. German Expressionism, Soviet montage, French impressionism and surrealism are well known, but the glories of Chinese and Japanese films – with stars like Ruan Lingyu – have been forgotten.
