Lev Kuleshov

Russian and Soviet filmmaker and film theorist; founder of the world's first film school, the Moscow Film School.

Lev Vladimirovich Kuleshov (13 January 1899 – 29 March 1970) was a Russian and Soviet filmmaker and film theorist, one of the founders of the world's first film school, the Moscow film School. He was given the title People's Artist of the RSFSR in 1969. He was intimately involved in the development of the style of film making known as Soviet montage, especially its psychological underpinning, including the use of editing and the cut to emotionally influence the audience, a principle known as the kuleshov effect. He also developed the theory of creative geography, which is the use of the action around a cut to connect otherwise disparate settings into a cohesive narrative.
