Commentaries and bibliography
 
A Fish Factory in Astrakhan is part of the Pathé Frères series “Picturesque Russia,” typical of their efficient documentary style. The company had established a Moscow equipment and sales office in 1904, which also rented their French-made films to Russia’s burgeoning cinema network. It was the emergence of Drankov as the first self-declared indigenous producer that prompted Pathé to start production in Russia in February 1908.
