    Gorky Trilogy III

    The trilogy based upon Maxim Gorky’s autobiographical works – “Childhood of Maxim Gorky”, “My Apprenticeship”, “My Universities”, had written down Donskoy’s name in the history of world cinema. The original human characters, the colorful genre scenes, the shrewd observations of life… By these films, the Italian neorealists were learning from the director a poetical approach to ordinary life, sudden transitions from the everyday chronicling to the heights of romantic perception of reality.

    Alyosha Peshkov comes to Kazan to study. The university proved an unreachable dream for him, and he had to look for a job and live without a permanent shelter. The young Peshkov’s thoughts are as oppressive as his life. At a moment of desperation he decides to commit suicide…

    In 1956, UNESCO issued a catalogue with the names of the 28 greatest filmmakers. Mark Donskoy had earned an honorary place in that list along with Eisenstein, Pudovkin and Dovzhenko. He became one of the world’s most popular film directors.

    “Maxim Gorky sees and perceives everything with his pen… His pen is not the instrument, but the organ of the writer…” (Franz Kafka, 1920)
