Marlen Khutsiev was born in Tbilisi in 1925, made his first feature films in Odessa in the 1950s, and has lived and worked in Moscow since 1959. His early work was shaped by Soviet filmmakers’ discovery of Italian neorealism in the 1950s and the new political and aesthetic freedoms of the Thaw; his great 1960s films have more in common with the work of Antonioni and Godard. Frequently criticized by Soviet authorities, his films are few in number, but each an artistic and historical landmark. As critic Aleksei Gusev noted when the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) presented Khutsiev with its 2011 award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to World Cinema’: ‘Our country’s history is lined with his films.’ Khutsiev is President of the Russian Federation’s Guild of Film Directors. Recently retired as Head of the Directing Faculty at the Russian State Institute of Cinematography, Khutsiev continues to offer master classes and lecture frequently on filmmaking. He is a lively raconteur with many stories to tell about his own films, as well as his work with filmmakers Ihor Savchenko, Mikhail Romm, Boris Barnet, Sergei Parajanov, Andrei Tarkovskii and many others.
