Chapter Summary

In the early decades of the twentieth century the term ‘Futurism’ was loosely used to describe a wide variety of aggressively ‘modern’ styles in art and literature. The roots of Futurism are a tangled web of early twentieth century political, cultural and philosophical currents that found expression in Filippo Marinetti’s bombastic “Founding and Manifesto of Futurism”, published in Le Figaro in 1909. While Futurism had an impact worldwide, it was in Russia where it had its most vigorous development, outside of Italy. This chapter will explore the film career of Vladimir Mayakovsky as the link between the early days of Futurist activity in this field and the full flowering of the Futurist aesthetic in the Soviet montage cinema of the 1920s.
