Vsevolod Ilarionovich Pudovkin

Pudovkin, Vsevolod Ilarionovich (fsyĕˈvələt ēləryônˈəvĭch pōdôfˈkĭn) [key], 1893–1953, Russian film director. He used new techniques of film editing, particularly intercutting, in his character-centered stories. His most famous work came at the end of the silent era, with films such as Mother (1925), The End of St. Petersburg (1927), and Storm over Asia (1930). His theoretical writings, sometimes considered more important than his film work, include Film Technique (tr., enl. ed. 1933) and Film Acting (tr. 1935).
