Eisensteins Theory of Montage

The idea that a human being, while living in a social context, is not only an organic embodiment, rather diverse aspects of his entity are considerably influenced by socio-political, cultural, economic and gender discourse, have also received special attention from intellectual as well as a general section of the society. Film making, as one of the most important forms of artistic representation, received special importance in this context and ample experimentations were made in this domain to provide the audience with the impression that they are actually witnessing a piece of life that they encounter in their daily course of action. However, during the course of attainment of the goal, directors provided ample importance to the development of new techniques depending on diverse theories of film making so that along with visual aesthetics, the touch of realism can also be reflected in its original form. The emergence of world-famous Soviet Director Sergei Eisenstein and application of his theories regarding film making can be evaluated from a new perspective as the art of film making received a fitting impetus due to these factors. Sergei Eisenstein can be observed as one of the pioneers in the context of modern art film making as he explicitly showed how, by maintaining the balance between theory and artistic application in films, a successful creative effort can be generated.

Thesis Statement: Eisenstein, throughout his career, has maintained a harmonious balance between his theory and works. The film, as he believed, should transcend the limited scope of providing aesthetic pleasure and consequently help the audience to encounter reality in its actual form: this approach has adequately been fulfilled through his creative efforts. The integral connection between his theory and its successful implementation in films is the most explicit proof in support of the observation.
Eisenstein commenced his career as a director as a recognized figure in Soviet stage performances and reached the culmination of directorial craftsmanship during the 1920s.&nbsp.
