LOT NOTES
Yutkevich was a well-known Russian Soviet Avant-garde artist, theater and cinema producer, cinema theorist as well as screenwriter. He studied in VHUTEMAS. Between 1921 and 1923 he studied under Vsevolod Meyerhold. Later he helped to found the Factory of the Eccentric Actor (FEKS), which was primarily concerned with circus and music hall acts. He entered films in the 1920s and began directing in 1928. His films often were cheerier than most Russian films as he was influenced by American slapstick, among other things. However he also did serious historical films, docudramas, and biopics.He won Cannes's Best Director Award twice: for Othello in 1956 and for Lenin in Poland in 1966.
