Dovzhenko, Aleksandr

a motion-picture director who brought international recognition to the Soviet film industry during the 1930s. Emotional intensity and mystical symbolism often took precedence over narrative structure in his films, many of which concerned the Russian Civil War (1918-20) and the collectivization period (late 1920s to early '30s).
