Less is known about his remarkable and extensive writings, which present a continent of ideas about film.  Here Robert Robertson explores a significant area of Eisenstein’s thought: his ideas about the audiovisual in cinema, which are more pertinent today than ever before with the advent of digital technology--music and sound now act as independent variables combined with the visual medium to produce a truly audiovisual result. Eisenstein explored in his writings this complex exciting subject with more depth and originality than any other practitioner. Eisenstein on the Audiovisual is essential reading for anyone who deals with the audiovisual in cinema and related audiovisual forms, including theatre, opera, dance and multimedia.
