The collection of Russian filmmakers who made up the core of what came to be known as Films Albatros arrived from Moscow after the October 1917 revolution by way of Yalta, Constantinople and Marseilles, establishing their base of operations in an old Pathe greenhouse-style studio in the Paris suburb of Montreuil. From it flowed some of the finest French films of the 1920s - variously experimental, spectacular, charming, witty; and always beautifully executed. The five exciting features in this collection, each restored to excellent condition by La Cinematheque francaise, are all U.S. house video premires, accompanied by outstanding new music by Timothy Brock, Robert Isreal, Neil Brand, Antonio Coppola and the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra.
