La danse des valeursSergueï Eisenstein et le Capital de Marx

Elena Vogman - La danse des valeurs
Elena Vogman examines the unpublished archival material relating to the film adaptation of Karl Marx's Capital by Sergei Eisenstein. The analysis of these materials reveals the clear and ambitious idea that animated the Soviet filmmaker for this aborted project: to build a visual theorization of value.
