Art, film and political action. Brief historiographic review of the ideas of Bolshevik filmmakers: Dziga Vertov and D’Alexandre Medvedkine.

Abstract in spanish

This article is an approach to the experiences of two Bolshevik filmmakers: Dziga Vertov and D’Alexandre Medvedkine. It is a first, historiographic study that is woven, in the first place, with the primary sources of the films and the published testimonies of both filmmakers, to read them from some of the most important references that I located. They are germinal experiences that were forged at the time of the October Revolution of 1917 in Russia, sometimes it is necessary to bring them back to account and review them again, to understand some keys about trends and expressions that are observed in contemporary audiovisual proposals.
