Edited by Karen Pearlman and Adelheid Heftberger

From the editors’ introduction:

“Cumulatively, this special issue of Apparatus aims to reveal the invisible. Its methodology is to bring to light the skills, intelligence, expertise, accomplishments, significance, and influence of women on film form through their work as editors and beyond. By bringing together, for the first time ever, ideas and information about Ėsfir’ Shub, Elizaveta Svilova, Anna Pudovkina, Vera Popova, and Lilia Brik, under one cover, the issue lays the ground for new narratives of Soviet filmmaking, narratives that account for the essential creative work of women in bringing Soviet films and theories in to being.”
