Biography
Serguei Iosifovich Yutkevich, Soviet film director, artist and film theorist. People's Artist of the USSR (1962). Doctor in Art history (1961). S. Yutkevich started his creative career path in the times of tumultuous artistic life of post-revolutionary era. In 1921-1923 he studied at the Higher Directing Courses of V. Meyerhold theater (GVYRM) and VKHUTEMAS. He worked as a designer at the theater studio of N. Foregger ("Mastfor"), then as a director and designer of agitprop theater groups "The Blue Blouse".
In 1921 together with G Konzintsev and L. Trauberg set up the Factory of Eccentric Actor (FEKS).
S. Yutkevich started to work in cinema in 1925. His debut short film "Let There Be Radio!", an eccentric agit-comedy drawing from the life of Moscow waifs also included a parody on American polar.
The main theme that S. Yutkevich addresses throughout his work is the representation of V. Lenin. The «Leniniana» of S. Yutkevich is a cycle of films deeply different and at the same time forming a unified whole. In 1969 the film "Subject for a Short Story" that encompasses the period in the life of A.Tchekhov associated with the writing of "The Seagull" earned a medal at the Venice International Film Festival. From 1929 S.Yutkevich taught at VGIK, headed the acting department; he is the author of a number of books and articles about theater and cinema.
