ST. PETERSBURG, September 21 (RIA Novosti)
Lenfilm Studios has received a collection of 350 Russian silent movies made before the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, the St. Petersburg City Culture Committee said on Friday.
The collection was handed over by Steven Krams, president of Magna-Tech Electronic Co. Inc. The films were taken out of Russia during the Civil War.
Krams decided to return the films to Russia as a sign of respect for Lenfilm Studios’ contribution to cinematography.
According to Lenfilm board chairman Eduard Pichugin, the collection will arrive in Russia by December.
The films will be digitized and prepared for screening.
Lenfilm, Russia’s second largest film studio, was founded in 1918.
