Experiments in the Revival of Organisms (Soviet Union, 1940)

Apologies for the long absence, readers.  I’ve been busy with mostly non-film, no-fun sorts of things.

I am however, working on an experimental short for the Chicago Filmmakers Location Sound Recording & Editing Techniques class, in which I’ve been enrolled for the past month. My process has been a little slow-going, but I’ll post the finished piece [or at least some version of it], once I get done with it.

For now, you might consider taking a gander at this short film from 1940, which documents some bizarre Soviet attempts at animal corpse resuscitation. Produced by Moscow’s Techfilm Studio.
